Eugène Isabey (1803-1886) - Back from Fishing

Eugène Isabey was the son and student of the famous miniaturist Jean-Baptiste Isabey.
He exclusively painted seascapes, genre scenes, and still life.
He will quickly detach himself from the classical style his father used, and will paint in a romantic style.

He debuts at the Salon de 1824 with a seascape painting, which was a subject he really liked. Thanks to his talent, he will be recognized as the best seascape painter of his time. He finds his inspiration in Normandy, Brittany, Holland, and England.
In 1830, he was named the official drawer of l’expédition d’Alger.

In his paintings it is clear that English peasants in particular from Bonington, are what inspired him the most.
Isabey learned that yellow and subtle gray tones give a pearly light to a painting. Those tones give the calm movements in his paintings a more romantic temperament.
He becomes one of the biggest masters out of the small group of romantic style painters of his time because of his diversity and capability to depict emotions through his artwork.

He was able to directly influence Boudin and Jongkind by teaching them how to translate luminosity of the atmosphere onto a painting. He creates one of the main links between l’école des paysagistes de 1830 and Impressionism.
