Eugène Louis Gabriel Isabey was a French painter, draftsman, and printmaker. The artist was born in Paris, capital of France, on July 22, 1803. Eugène Isabey, died April 27, 1886.The artist’s father was the painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey. Eugène Isabey studied at the Louvre Museum, where he began to work.
After spending his formative years in the Louvre Museum amidst the most accomplished artists of the day, Eugène Isabey initially painted mostly landscapes in watercolor. In 1820, he travelled to Normandy and Britain painting land and seascapes.On several occasions he returned to Normandy, painting seascapes and landscapes that helped to solidify his reputation as one of the leading proponents of Romantic views, both dramatic and placid.
Eugène Louis Gabriel Isabey also made drawings of other scenic areas of France to illustrate travel volumes and dashed off many landscape drawings and watercolors throughout his life. As the official artist accompanying the French expedition to Algiers in 1830, Isabey illustrated the account of the expedition. The expedition’s paintings sold poorly on the market and encouraged him to switch to narrative and historical painting.
He was later selected to become one of Louis-Philippe’s court painters.His success with an anecdotal genre painting at the 1831 Salon led him to a new specialty in historicizing genre painting. Isabey’s skill with elegant court dress and elaborately re-created ceremonies of earlier centuries, in turn, led to an appointment as one of Louis-Philippe’s court painters. In his later years, he painted brightly colored scenes of violence, massacres, duels, and looting.
