DESCRIPTION:  The Parisian Paul Désiré Trouillebert was a disciple of Corot’s and a precursor of Impressionism. Though famous for his landscapes, his early career focussed on portraiture and nudes. He made his Salon debut in 1865 with two portraits and was commissioned by many important personalities of the time. The influence of Corot is very much evident in his works - Trouillebert first came into the limelight when one of his paintings was sold to Alexandre Dumas's son as a work by Corot. Trouillebert clearly understood the balance of attractive setting, magical coloring, and assured craftsmanship that made Corot's work internationally appealing.
Trouillebert also incorporated the lessons of the Impressionists in his work, with brushstrokes that are light and transparent and a noteworthy palette. Typical of his technique is the use of red as a base colour, giving a distinctive tonality to his works and heightening his masterful ability to portray the surrounding landscape.
