although belonging to this period, lived down into the opening years of the present century. He was born in New Orleans
in 1833, and died in 1909. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts,º
in Paris, and was a pupil of Julien. He was a portrait and genre painter of great merit. His street-scenes were well executed,
full of poetry and charm. As a teacher and painter he had much to do with the advancement of local art. Some of his portraits
will bear comparison with the best American work of his time. A very fine example hangs today in the Delgado Museum.
