Girodet is associated with his exact and clear style and for his paintings of individuals from the Napoleonic family. Girodet was conceived at Montargis. Both of his folks passed on when he was a youthful grown-up. The consideration of his legacy and instruction tumbled to his gatekeeper, an unmistakable doctor named Benoît-François Trioson, "médecin-de-mesdames", who later received him. The two men stayed close for the duration of their lives and Girodet took the surname Trioson in 1812. In school, he originally considered engineering and sought after a military vocation. He changed to the investigation of painting under an instructor named Luquin and afterward entered the school of Jacques-Louis David. At 22 years old he effectively vied for the Prix de Rome with a painting of the Story of Joseph and his Brethren. From 1789 to 1793 he lived in Italy and keeping in mind that in Rome he painted his Hippocrate refusant les presents d'Artaxerxes and Endymion-lethargic (presently in the Louver), a work which picked up him extraordinary approval at the Salon of 1793 and verified his notoriety for being a main painter in the French school. When he came back to France, Girodet painted numerous pictures, including some of the individuals from the Bonaparte family. In 1806, in rivalry with the Sabines of David, he displayed his Scène de déluge (Louver), which was granted the decennial prize. In 1808 he created the Reddition de Vienne and Atala au tombeau, a work which won tremendous ubiquity, by its lucky decision of subject – François-René de Chateaubriand's tale Atala, first distributed in 1801 – and its amazing departure from the showiness of Girodet's standard way. He would come back to his dramatic style in La Révolte du Caire (1810).

Girodet created a tremendous amount of representations, among which might be refered to those for the Didot versions of crafted by Virgil (1798) and Racine (1801–1805). Fifty-four of his structures for crafted by the antiquated Greek artist Anacreon were engraved by M. Châtillon. Girodet utilized quite a bit of his time on scholarly piece. His ballad Le Peintre (rather a series of commonplaces), together with poor impersonations of old-style artists, and expositions on Le Génie and La Grâce, were distributed after death in 1829, with a true to life notice by his companion Coupin de la Couperie.

Girodet was prepared in the neoclassical style of his educator, Jacques-Louis David, found in his treatment of the male naked body and his reference to models from the Renaissance and Classical artifact. Be that as it may, he additionally veered off from this style in a few different ways. The eccentricities which mark Girodet's situation as the envoy of the sentimental development are as of now clear in his Sleep of Endymion (1791, likewise called Effet de lune or "impact of the Moon"). In spite of the fact that the topic and posture are motivated by traditional points of reference, Girodet's diffuse lighting is increasingly dramatic and barometrical. The gender-ambiguous delineation of the dozing shepherd Endymion is additionally vital. These early sentimental impacts were significantly increasingly striking in his Ossian, showed in 1802. Girodet depicted as of late executed Napoleonic officers being invited into Valhalla by the anecdotal versifier Ossian. The painting is striking for its consideration of bright meteors, vaporous radiance, and ghostly heroes.

A similar coupling of exemplary and sentimental components denotes Girodet's Danae (1799) and his Quatre Saisons, executed for the ruler of Spain (rehashed for Compiègne), and demonstrates itself to an over the top degree in his Fingal (Leuchtenberg assortment, St. Petersburg), executed for Napoleon in 1802. Girodet can be seen here consolidating parts of his old style preparing and conventional training with new artistic patterns, well known logical displays, and a quintessential enthusiasm for the weird and the odd. Thusly his work declares the ascent of a sentimental stylish which prizes uniqueness, articulation, and creative mind over an adherence to old style scholastic points of reference.
