DESCRIPTION:  Paul Desire Trouillebert (1829-1900): Born in Paris, Trouillebert’s early years were focused on a career as a professional violinist (he became the soloist at the Theatre Lyrique), and he used the frequent breaks in work to pursue his love of painting. By 1855 he decided to concentrate solely on painting and entered the studios of two highly rated artists of the time – Ernest Herbert (1817-1908) and Charles Jalabert (1819-1901). Trouillebert first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1865 (the annual exhibition for members of the French Royal Academy) where he became a regular exhibiting artist until 1885, when he fell out with the overly-strict committee as he believed they were responsible for stifling the progress of young French artists. Trouillebert, who painted direct onto canvas outdoors, developed a soft and silvery style of painting, treating light and perspective with great sensitivity. Although not a member of the Barbizon school, he did share their inspiration of “plein air” – painting outdoors “in the open air”, portraying nature as the artist saw it. Few artists have managed to capture the same harmony in river landscapes as Trouillebert; his understanding of the countryside is evident in his work. Trouillebert’s work is as critically acclaimed today as it was during his lifetime, and his paintings are now held in the collections of over thirty museums throughout the world, including the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, as well as museums in Nice, Mulhouse, Reims and Saumur. This oil on canvas is signed in the lower right hand corner, and is presented in an antique gilt-wood frame.
