Biography  
Gaston La Touche


Born at St Cloud, near Paris, on the 29th October 1854, Gaston La Touche showed an early vocation for an artistic career.  From the age of about ten years, he spent every available moment of recreation in drawing, and finally managed to obtain permission from his parents to take lessons from a M. Paul, who quickly discovered his natural aptitude and encouraged the young boy to persevere with his studies.

Interrupted by the Franco-Prussian war of 1870, the lessons ceased when the family fled to Normandy.  La Touche never received any further formal training, but he came under the influence of two older painters, one of whom in particular was to have a profound and far-reaching effect on the development of European painting.   ...  Displaying 750 of 11703 characters.
