Timolеon Marie Lobrichon (French artist, 1831-1914)


Timoléon Marie Lobrichon was born in Cornod, France on April 26, 1831 and died in Paris in January 1914. He was considered a genre painter from the French school. Lobrichon received his formal training at the Beaux-Arts Academie with François Edouard Picot. His debut was at the Paris Salon of 1859. He later was awarded the first place medal at the Paris Salon of 1868. In 1882, Lobrichon was elected Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur, one of France’s most coveted honors. Lobrichon became one of the most sought after and celebrated painters for portraits of children. He was able to capture the character and personality of each child. This gift carried over to all his portraiture; rather than being just a portrait, Lobrichon created a story which involved the character’s personality. In 1884, he illustrated the very popular book "La chanson de l’enfant (The Song of A Child)" by Jean Aicard. He also exhibited regularly in Germany and Melbourne.
