Jacques-Laurent Agasse is a painter from Yale Center for British Art that paints pictures of a variation of many different things. Most of his paintings that I found are paintings of animals or plants but some consist of humans from the past doing different kinds of activities. My favorite of them is the one with the giraffe and the humans. The giraffe in the picture was one of the three giraffes sent to Europe Mehmet Ali Pasha. This giraffe was received by George IV in London. Jacques was born on April 24th, 1767 and died on December 27th, 1849. He was born in Geneva, Switzerland and went to Paris for veterinary school to get himself fully acquainted with horses and other animals. He also went to Royal College of Surgeons England to paint some of his most famous pieces. Some of his pieces are also displayed in museums like Victoria Gallery and Museum. Also his pieces are in certain art collectors private galleries.
