Paul Désiré Trouillebert
Paul Desire Trouillebert was born in Paris in 1829. In addition to being a landscapist, he also painted portraits and nudes. The great influence of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot is very much evident in his works. In fact, Trouillebert first came into the limelight when one of his paintings was sold to Alexandre Dumas’s son as a work by Corot. The younger Dumas was mislead by the similarities in the compositions and styles of the two painters. Trouillebert made his Salon debut in 1865 and continued to enter paintings in the Salon competitions for many years thereafter.
