Ferdinand Victor Leon Roybet French painter & printmaker born 1840- died 1920

Ferdinand Roybet began his artistic education at the École des graveurs in Lyon, and in 1864 the young artist traveled to Paris where became a student of Jean Vibert. In 1865, he debuted at the Salon des Champs Elysees and that same year exhibited etchings at the Societe des aquafortistes. By 1866 he exhibited his first picture at the Salon and the artist's fortune was made. He specialized throughout his career in costume pictures, often depicting musketeers, cavaliers and elegant ladies, all characterized by virtuoso brushwork and the use of vibrant, saturated colors. In 1871, he traveled to Holland and was influenced by the work of Rembrandt and Frans Hals. Roybet received many honors in his lifetime, including medals of honor at the Exposition universelle d'Anvers in 1894 as well as at exhibitions in Berlin and Vienna. He was made a chevalier of the legion d'honneur in 1893.
