Henry Charles Trouville
19th CenturyHenri Charles Trouville was born at Loudun, in the department of Vienne in the Poitou-Charentes region of western France. Little is known of his artistic training, but Trouville was primarily influenced by the painters of the Barbizon School, such as Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1795-1875) and Charles-François Daubigny (1817-1878). In common with his contemporary Paul-Désiré Trouillebert (1829-1900) and other plein-air artists of the time, Trouville was inspired by the forest of Fontainebleau and he painted many of his subjects there. He exhibited his work at the Paris Salon from 1878.
