Brief Biography-Eugène Isabey was the son of the painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey who tutored him while he studied the old masters in the Louvre. He was a printmaker, a painter of landscapes and genre scenes before moving on to marine and historical works. The works of Théodore Géricault had a strong influence on him. In 1821, he went to England and was impressed by Richard Parkes Bonington and J.M.W. Turner. He achieved recognition at the salon of 1824. In 1832, after becoming court painter to King Louis-Philippe, he received the Légion d'Honneur. Several of his paintings are in the Louvre. He died at Montévrain in 1886.
