Stendhal (1783–1842) was the nom-de-plume of Marie-Henri Beyle, who was born in Grenoble in 1783. He served in the army under Napoleon, but on the restoration of the monarchy moved to Italy, where he started his career as a travel writer. His great love of the arts, and his declared ecstatic dizziness at the overwhelming beauty and magnificence of Italian paintings, frescoes, statues, and architecture, particularly in Florence, led to the recent coining of the “Stendhal Syndrome.” On his return to Paris in 1821, he moved into society, had several publicized affairs, and in 1830 published The Red and the Black, considered by many to be one of his masterpieces. He took a diplomatic post in Italy, but in 1841 became ill and returned to Paris, where he died of a stroke in 1842.
