In 1759, French of neoclassical painter Louis-Andre Gabriel Bouchet is born in Paris. He died in the year 1842. His clear style with strict lines and reduced coloration results from his training with Jacques-Louis David. in 1797 he is awarded the Prix de Rome. Bouchet presented his works at the Salon de Paris until 1819.
in 1807 he manufactures his portrait as a counterpart to the work of Empress Josephine to 1805 running Robert Lefevre on behalf of emperor Napoleon I. Napoleon gives this two portraits of the city of Aachen on 6 December 1807. The paintings are drawn up under Cannon Thunder in the Emperor’s Hall. As the Aachen paintings located in the Berlin City Palace, copies be made on arrangement by Friedrich Wilhelm IV., before he sends back images in 1840 to Aachen. Presumably, Professor Carl Schmid created the reproductions. Today, the original works adorn the foyer of Aachen’s Town Hall.
