Shepherds in a landscape - Emile Loubon (1809-1863)

A pupil of Constantin and Granet, who took him to Rome in 1829, Emile Charles Joseph Loubon also frequented the Barbizon painters such as Diaz and Rousseau and turned definitively towards landscape painting in the south of France. Director of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Marseille from 1845 to 1863, he reconsidered the teaching of art. He excelled as a painter of Provençal landscapes. His worked paste and brushwork are very well suited to the dry, chalky landscape of Provence.

His curiosity about nature as wild and true as it was, and his observation of it in the open air, took the place of a conventional, artificial and recomposed nature. He became the driving force behind artistic life, setting up a regular salon to exhibit and compare the paintings of his students and his Parisian friends. Corot, Rousseau, Harpignies, Millet and many other artists, such as the Orientalists, exhibited and painted in Marseille. Under his impetus, a school of landscape painters developed, with Loubon as its master and Provence as its studio.
