"b. Paris, 1840. Pupil of L'Ecole des Beaux Arts and of Barrias. Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. " Vibert's pictures are remarkable for delicacy of touch and splendid feeling for color. In all their minuteness and careful realization of texture there is still found great breadth of treatment. The artist appears to have clearly fixed in his mind from the outset the picture he wishes to paint, and when he goes about it every stroke seems to transfer a portion of his impression to the canvas. There is no experimenting; there are no hesitating lines; every thing is clear and firm, showing the exact knowledge and confidence of the man." [P. 37.]
