Biography  
Leon Richet


Léon Richet was born in Solesmes (Sathe), Normandy in 1847 and he died in Fountainbleau (Seine-et-Marne) on May 26, 1907.  He was a student of Narcisse Virgle Diaz de La Pena (1807/9-1876), Charles Victor Eugéne Lefébvre (1805-1882) and Louis Jean Boulanger (1806/7-1867).  Diaz had the greatest impression on Richet, and it is Diaz is remembered historically. There was a great difference in age between Diaz and Richet, which most likely explains the great respect on the part of the student for his master.

Richet began exhibiting in the Paris Salons in 1869.  At the Salon of 1885, he was awarded honorable mention, and he was awarded a second place medal in the Salons of 1888 and 1901.
