"(Fr.) Paris. Pupil of Troyon. Medals, Paris Salon, 1867, 1869, 1870. Legion of Honor 1872. Medal 1st cl. 1878, Universal Exposition. As a cattle painter he ranks next to his master, Troyon. Cattle. 32 x 22. A splendid example of this great artist. The drawing of these animals, the clear atmospheric effect and the broad, bold management of light and shade are masterly. Nothing can be finer than the transparency of the shadows in this picture. It deserves prolonged study."
