Carl Roux – Born August 14, 1826 in Heidelberg; Died July 23 1894 in Mannheim

Carl Roux, a German painter, was the son of the master painter and draughtsman Jacob Wilhelm Roux and his second wife, Charlotte Mariana Wippermann.  Jacob Roux came from an old Huguenot family where his father was a fencing master, and was a sought-after portraitist in Heidelberg.  Carl's first artistic lessons were through his father and at the age of 18, he became a student at the Dusseldorf Art Academy in 1844.  While at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Mr. Roux made the acquaintance of Carl Wilhelm Hubner, a notable German genre painter, and became his pupil in 1847.  After 1948, the artist was in Munich at the local Academy of Fine Arts where he met the painter Carl Theodor von Piloty and his brother Ferdinand.  From Munich, Mr. Roux undertook studies in the Netherlands and France with long stays in Antwerp and Paris.  He then settled down as a freelance artist in Karlsruhe.

In Karlsruhe, Roux married Alice, a daughter of Munzrats Ludwig.  In 1865, Alice died and three years later, Mr. Roux returned to Munich.  Four weeks before his sixty-eighth birthday, Mr. Roux died in Mannheim.

In his early works, Mr. Roux addressed historical events such as in his work The Battle of Philips Wouwerman which shows riders on the run in a scene from the Thirty Year War.  With time, Roux developed his own style of genre painting in which he depicts folk scenes from life.  Art critics also praised his depictions of animals.
