Gustave Moreau (1826 - 1898)
Usually called a symbolist, Moreau was the greatest painter of the French Decadent movement, and a teacher of brilliant students such as Roualt and Matisse, allowing them to develop in their own ways and not imposing his own style on his pupils. He began his own studies in the studio of Francois Picot at the Paris Beaux-Arts in 1846, and travelled in Italy from 1857 to 1859. He taught at the Ecole des Beaux Arts from 1892 until his death.
