Le roi des moutards / Jean-Pierre-Alexandre Antigna.

Jean Pierre Alexandre Antigna (March 7, 1817 – February 26, 1878) was a French painter. After living in the poor quarter of the Île Saint-Louis in Paris, he would incorporate images of the suffering and burden of urban poor into his works. By the 1848 Revolution, Antigna was devoted to the Realist style, and continued to paint in this manner until c. 1860 when he began to produce paintings in the Naturalist style.
