Victor Louis Merlin, French,  died  1892

Remembered only as a painter of portraits, Victor Louis Merlin left few clues pertaining to his life.  It is known that he was born in Lille, France; that he went to Paris where he received his art instruction and spent the remainder of his life.

His instructor in Paris was Leon Cogniet, an Officer of the Legion of Honor, a painter of historical subjects and known as a devoted teacher.  Cogniet had been appointed Professor of Drawing in the Lyceum of Louis le Grand and in the Polytechnic School of Paris. 

Merlin began public exhibition of his work in 1859, showing the first of many portraits at the annual Paris Salon; this he did regularly until his death in Paris in 1892.

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.
