Les ateliers de peinture et de sculpture des arsenaux en Provence en marge de l’Académie de peinture et de sculpture de Marseille

Abstract : Training artists and illustrators for the naval dockyards was one of the ambitions formulated in 1755 by the future Marseille Academy. Proposing to address the lack of painters and sculptors to decorate ships, the Academy proposed to teach “the elements of the drawing arts” to an audience expanded to include the whole naval staff. Nevertheless, these announcements from the institution tend to conceal the fact that since the seventeenth century, the arsenals already had facilities in place devoted to teaching drawing. Therefore, what could the Marseille Academy contribute to Toulon’s arsenal? To answer this question, this article proposes to look back at the origins of drawing apprenticeship in arsenals, as well as the delicate question of live model drawing, which was, since 1655, the privilege of academic education.
