Eugène-Ferdinand Buttura

1812 - 1852

Buttura studied landscape in Paris as a pupil of both Jean-Victor Bertin (1767-1842) and Jean-Charles-Joseph Rémond. In 1837 he was awarded the Prix de Rome in historical landscape painting and subsequently travelled to Italy.

He remained at the Villa Medici in Rome until 1842, and made landscape drawings as well as numerous landscape oil sketches. Buttura continued to exhibit finished landscape compositions at the Paris Salon until his early death.
