Painter of genre, portraits and watercolors, he was born in Paris in 1846, and died in 1909. A student of Bouguereau, his one and only master, he made his debut at the 1865 Salon with "Rêverie", very much influenced by the painter. In 1866, he began a genre that was to become his own: small canvases, evoking in detail the elegant life of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries.
1868, 3rd medal ("Sortie d'armée au 16e s."). He discovered portraiture, enjoying dressing his models in the shimmering costumes of the 16th century.
1875 : 1st Medal; Legion of Honor in 1879.
He tried his hand at nudes with success.
He was qualified as a painter of delicacy.
