He was born at Chaumes (Nièvre) in 1798. In 1808 he went to Paris, where he studied painting under Watelet, Regnault[1] and Victor Bertin.[2] He made his debut in 1822 with an historical landscape on the subject of Daphnis and Chloe.[1]In 1824–7 he travelled in Italy, where he became friend of Corot. He was to return to Italy several more times.[2] He settled in Paris, making frequent visits to Fontainebleau, Barbizon, and the coast of Normandy. In 1843 he went to Greece to make drawings of the major ancient sites, and then continued to Asia Minor.[2]

He obtained a medal of the first class in 1837, and the Legion of Honour in 1842. His View of Genazzano, Environs of Rome, and View of Royat, France, were sent by the French Government to the International Exhibition of 1862 in London.[1] He was described by Théophile Gautier as the "Ingres of landscape painting".[2]
