Anne-Louis Girodet has always disturbed. His taste for the strange, his ambiguous eroticism, his literary sophistication and his quick-tempered disposition both fascinated and disconcerted during his lifetime. His alluring, purposefully symbolist art foretold of the most literary moments in French painting.

A biochronology by Bruno Chenique, presented on CD-ROM, completes the first major monograph on this artist.
