Biography - Desportes, Alexandre-François
(äl ksäN´dr -fräNswä´ d pôrt´) (KEY) , 1661–1743, French painter. He is best known for his hunting scenes and paintings of animals. Desportes, who began as a portrait painter, was among the first to paint landscapes from nature; for that practice he was held to be eccentric. His works are in the tradition of careful realism of Flemish still-life paintings. The Louvre and the Wallace Collection, London, have examples of his work.
