Emile Van Marcke

Biography from the Archives of askART

Émile van Marcke (1827-1890 or 1891)

He was a French cattle painter, born at Sèvres, Hauts-de-Seine, France.

He studied under Troyon at Barbizon.  He received the cross of the Legion of Honor in 1872 and a gold medal at the Paris exhibition.

His favorite themes incorporated cattle, water, reflections, dramatic cloudscapes and a feeling of life and motion and verdant nature.  Nature is idyllic and animals emblematic of that harmony.

His work is represented at the Louvre and other museums of France, and at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, and in other public and private collections in the United States.
