Biography from the Archives of askART

Biography photo for Charles Zacharie Landelle
Among the most eminent of French figure painters of the older school was Charles Landelle, who was born at Laval, in Mayenne, in 1821, and was a pupil of Paul Delaroche and Ary Scheffer. He never equalled either of his masters in power of expression, but possessed a soft and pleasing style of his own.

His life was extremely successful as a painter of easel pictures, portraits, and decorative compositions, and examples of him are to be found in all the museums of Paris and the departments of France, and in many of the best American collections.

The Rebecca is one of his pictures purchased by the Government. Landelle was repeatedly medalled from 1842 down, and in 1855 was received into the Legion of Honor for his picture The Virgin Resting, which now hangs in the Louvre.
