Born at Lyons, France; pupil of Perin. Medals, 1861, 1863 and 1869. The artist was first brought into notice by the painting of emigrants abandoning the Campagna of Rome during the fever season. "One of the first objects I saw upon the beach was the body of Virginia. The features were not changed, her eyes were closed, but the brow still retained its expression of serenity, and on her cheeks was the livid hue of death, blended with the blush of virgin modesty." St. Pierre, Paul and Virginia. [P. 28.]
