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

A French painter, he was born into a peasant family in the Sundgau and received his first artistic training at Altkirch with Charles Goutzwiller (1810–1900) and later in Strasbourg in the studio of Gabriel-Christophe Guérin (1790–1846).  In 1846 he enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris as a pupil of Michel-Martin Drolling and, from 1851, of François-Edouard Picot. 

While a student he was particularly drawn to portraiture, and during his frequent visits to Alsace he made (showing 500 of 958 characters).
