The Outer Harbor of Brest, 1773

Louis Nicolas van Blarenberghe was an 18th century French painter. Was born in Lille and learned how to paint from his father, Jean-Guillaume. He soon became skilled as a miniaturist, and started to get commissions from Madame de Pompadour, the Duc de Choiseul and Czar Peter III, among others. He was eventually appointed as the battlefield painter and a war correspondent for Louis XV and was given the duties of painting accurate battle scenes.
