(Deceased.) Born, June, 1839; Died, November, 1874. Son-in-law of Madrazo and pupil of Meissonnier. For subjects he preferred the striking and picturesque. The boldness of his coloring is startling, and there is a certain charm about his manner which justly placed him at the head of a school. He also painted brilliant aquarelles. His best pictures were painted at Rome from 1866 to 1870. [P. 7.]
