Lionel Noel Royer (French, 1852-1926)

Like most Academics, his work ranged from portraiture to history and genre painting, the latter of which were often used as illustrations. The 1899 painting of Vercingétorix Throwing His Weapons at the Feet of Julius Caesar is his most famous work. Little it is known of its life deprived, unless it had two daughters and a son, this one last one gassed during World War I . Their daughters left descendants in France and Belgium, respectively. Lionel Royer dies in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1926 July
