"b. Paris, 1817. Pupil of his father and of Paul Delaroche, and for three years a student in Italy. Was awarded medals, 1848, 1853, 1855, 1857, 1859, and 1867. Was made a member of the Legion of Honor in 1859, and an officer thereof in 1874. d. 1878, and the same year the Exposition Universelle accorded the 'Diploma to the Memory of Deceased Artists' to his memory. " The art of this illustrious master consists in choosing well a bit of country, and painting it as it is, inclosing in its frame all the simple and naive poetry which it contains. No effects of studied light, no artificial and complicated composition, nothing whatever which allures the eye, surprises the mind, and crushes the littleness of man. - Edward About." [P. 86-87.]
