    Entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts on February 25, 1815, he worked under the direction of Guérin and obtained a first class medal in 1831. He exhibited at the Salon from 1819 to 1848.
    He owes his reputation to his numerous portraits and religious paintings, treated with a brush of romantic sensibility in a British spirit.
    He is the friend and pupil of Eugène Delacroix, of whom he painted a portrait in 1840 which is kept in Paris at the Musée Carnavalet. A portrait of Eugène Sue is in the Magnin museum in Dijon with three other paintings by the same author. Five paintings are in the Louvre in Paris and four others in the National Museum of the Palaces of Versailles and Trianon, including a portrait of Marshal Clausel (1835).
    The portrait presented here may appear in the long list of works listed in the General Dictionary of Artists of the French School from the origin of the drawing arts to the present day, a work begun by Emile Bellier de La Chavignerie (1821 -1871) continued by Louis Auvray from 1882 to 1885.
