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

De Penne was a landscape and animal painter, born in Paris in 1831.  He was a student of Leon Cogniet.  In 1857, after attending art school, he won the Rome Grand Second Prize with his painting Jesus et la Samaritaine, a subject inspired by Victor Hugo.

De Penne also deeply loved the forest of Fontainebleau, animals and hunting.  Under an apprenticeship to Charles-Emile Jacque, a painter and aquafortist from the Barbizon School, he discovered the world of popular farming books.  From this evolved his rendering of hounds and hunting scenes.  It is evident that de Penne had a “love of beasts” and a marvelous understanding of their character.  Painting from life and regularly attended hunting’s with hounds, the artist carefully watched his models.  What resulted was a skillful rendering of the fluidity of a landscape with each dog's specific characteristics, like its pedigree, physiognomy and personality.  De Penne’s paintings became extremely popular during his lifetime, and remain so today.
