Charles Rémond

1795 - 1875

Rémond was a pupil of Jean-Baptiste Regnault (1754–1829) and Jean-Victor Bertin (1767–1842). He made his debut at the Salon in 1814 with two historical landscapes. In 1821 he won the Prix de Rome for historical landscape with his painting 'The Abduction of Proserpine by Pluto'.

From 1821 he travelled in Italy, staying in Rome, Naples, and Sicily, and on his return to Paris in 1826 he opened a studio.
