"b. Fourquevaux, 1848. Pupil of Bida and Leon Cogniet. Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. Medal of Honor, 1877. One of the artists employed by the French government to decorate the walls of the Pantheon in Paris with scenes illustrative of the history of Saint Genevieve, the patron saint of the city. " Upon the death of Theodosius the Roman empire was divided, and Arcadius and Honorius were saluted as the emperors of the east and west. Honorius assumed the nominal government of the west, A.D. January 17, 395, in the eleventh year of his age. He was utterly lacking in decision of character, and died after an inglorious reign of twenty-nine years. - A wonderfully realistic picture, well depicting the character, or rather lack of character of the youthful emperor." [P. 32.]
