Jean-Joseph Dassy, a French historical and portrait painter, and lithographer, was born at Marseilles on December 27, 1791 and died in the same city on July 27, 1865. He studied under Goubaud and Girodet-Trioson, and commenced exhibiting at the Paris Salon in 1819. There are several pictures by him at Versailles, among which are 'The Battle of Saucourt' and 'Charibert.'


Jean-Joseph Dassy was born on December 27, 1791 in Marseille. His father was a mason. His younger brother Louis-Toussaint Dassy was destined for the priesthood while his other two younger brothers, Pierre and Hippolyte, helped their father in his marble workshop. Three of his sisters were nuns.

Initially a student of Goubaud and Aubert at the École des Beaux-Arts in Marseille, he then went to Paris where, in 1817, he became one of the best students of Girodet-Trioson.[1]
