Philippe Rousseau

1816 - 1887

He is said to have been taught by Baron Antoine-Jean Gros and to have studied with Victor Bertin. He exhibited at the Salon from 1834, specialising initially in landscapes, which he showed for the next six Salons, and later in still-life painting, which he began to show in 1844. His still-lifes, influenced to a large degree by Jean-Siméon Chardin, were extremely popular, and he was created an officer of the Légion d'Honneur in 1870.
