Born on April 25, 1847 in Toulouse (Haute-Garonne). Died on 29 January 1913 in Paris.
19th and 20th centuries. French.

A student of Cabanel at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he took part in the Paris Salon in 1870, obtaining a second medal in 1874 with: The first mourning. He received the Troyon Prize at the Institute in 1874 and was second prize of Rome in 1875.
Admitted to the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1889, he was then withdrawn by order, and refused the bronze medal awarded to him by the jury. Dreyfusard convinced, he lost part of his clientele, the esteem of some of his friends and family members, at the time of the Case and signed a large allegorical canvas on this subject, entitled: The Truth. He became president of the Société des Artistes Français and was knight of the Legion of Honour.
In 1973, a major retrospective at the Musée de Tours led to the rediscovery of his anecdotal works. He is the author of historical compositions, in particular the Piété de saint Louis pour les morts 1879, at the cathedral of La Rochelle; but also of compositions of patriotic inspiration; of portraits, including those of Mr. Constant - Mme Constant - M. Camescasse - Pouyer-Quertier - Paul de Cassagnac - Général Boulanger; and of landscapes of academic style.
