Eugene Berthelon

Eugene Berthelon was born in Paris in 1829. He studied under the masterful French landscape artist Eugene Lavielle, learning the classic plein air technique for painting outdoors directly from nature. Between 1864 and his death in 1914, Berthelon would exhibit his paintings regularly at the Paris salon where they were well received, winning the artist an honorable mention in 1879 and the silver medal in 1889. Known as a painter of both landscapes and fine marine views, Berthelon’s works are exhibited today in museum collections of fine art throughout his native France.
