Paul Désiré Trouillebert Art for Sale at Auction

Painter, b. 1831 - d. 1900

(b Paris, 1829; d Paris, 1900) French Painter. Trouillebert began his artistic training in the studio of Auguste-Antoine-Ernest Hébert; an artist whose oeuvre encompassed diverse subject matter, ranging from portraits to mythology to landscapes of the Roman campagna. Trouillebert debuted at the Paris Salon of 1865 with Portrait de Mlle A... and at every Salon from 1865 to 1872 he exhibited at least one portrait, despite the fact that his interest had shifted primarily to landscape painting. The artist's reputation is based upon his landscape paintings, and his similarity to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot; this linked him closely to the other artists of the Barbizon School. [Though] Trouillebert was much more than a landscape artist. His occasional forays into the world of Orientalism are remarkable, and his ability in rendering the nude female form is often overlooked. In fact, his most well-received composition was Les Baigneuses, his entry into the 1882 Salon. (Credit: Christie’s, New York, 19th Century Paintings, October 27, 2004, Lot 47)
