Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles-Theodore Frere, referred to familiarly as Theodore, was born in Paris on June 24, 1814.  He was the older brother of Pierre-Édouard Frere, an established genre painter who had studied under Paul Delaroche. The fraternity of the two brother-artists, both attaining such a high level of prestige, was unique in that they treated extremely different themes. Theodore began studying under Jean-Leon Cogniet and Camille Roqueplan. Shortly after beginning his studies, he left Paris and travel (showing 500 of 8037 characters).
