Paul Desire Trouillebert Biography1829-1900
French Barbizon School Painter
Paul is considered a portrait, and a genre and landscape painter from the French Barbizon School. He was a student of Ernest Hebert (1817-1908) and Charles-Francois Jalabert (1819-1901), and made his debut at the Salon of 1865, exhibiting a portrait.
At the Paris Salon of 1869, Mr. Trouillebert exhibited "Au bois Rossignolet", which was a lyrical Fontainebleau landscape that received great critical acclaim.
He was interested in the orientalism and produced paintings of nudes. He painted a most fabulous portrait of a half-nude young woman in an ancient Egyptian style of the Greco-Roman Dynasty. He called it Servante du harem (The Harem Servant Girl). and in 1884, his painting of nudes, The Bathers was well received by the Paris Salon. He was a most famous fashion designer too.
