Pupil of Daguerre from the age of 29, Sebron entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under the teaching of Cogniet. He exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1831 and 1878.
First employed in the painting of dioramas, he then produced numerous paintings, particularly interiors of churches and ruins.
Like Daguerre, Bouton or Granet, Sebron paints detailed views with contrasting light effects.
Sebron is a traveling artist and he will bring back many views from his multiple journeys in Europe as well as around the Mediterranean and in the United States where he stayed from 1849 to 1855.
Around 1838 he went to the Spanish Basque Country to work. Four of his works are reproduced to illustrate the picturesque voyage to Spain, Portugal and the African coast of Baron Taylor. It is very likely that our drawing dated 1839 represents a convent sketched by Sebron during this trip.
