Augustin Théodule Ribot, born in Saint-Nicolas-d'Attez on August 8, 1823 and died on September 11, 1891 in Colombes, is a French painter, aquafortist and watercolorist, attached to the movement of realism.
In a striking darkness, his characters populate historical scenes, religious compositions, portraits or genre scenes. In the line of French realist painters of the nineteenth century, between Daumier and Manet, a place of choice should go to Théodule Ribot (1823-1891). This painter was pampered by Théophile Gautier for these small formats.
"Black, because the backgrounds of his portraits are dark, smutty. Black, because Ribot likes the chiaroscuro of Caravaggio, that of the Italians and Spaniards of the 17th century, like Ribera and Preti. He triturates the matter of his painting to the point of making the lemons of these still lifes as lumpy as citrons."
