Pierre-Antoine Labouchère (1807-1873) was a French historical painter.

Biography

He was born in Nantes, and was intended for a commercial career. He began business in Antwerp. Afterwards he traveled in America, China, and Italy, and finally became a pupil of Paul Delaroche in Paris.


Works

The subjects of his works are largely drawn from the actors and incidents of the Reformation. They include: "Charles Quint à Londres" ("Charles V in London," 1844), "Melanchthon, Pomeranus et Cruciger traduisant la Bible" ("Melanchthon, Pomeranus, and Cruciger translating the Bible," 1846). He also did some drawings for Jean-Henri Merle d'Aubigné's Vie de Luther. Among his portraits is one of Guizot (1863).
