Mathieu Kohler biography
Mathieu Kohler was born in Niederbronn in 1841. He studied art in Lyon at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. During the last half of the 19th Century, Lyon was a stronghold of Dutch-inspired flower painting. The City Art Gallery purchased, or was bequeathed, thirty flower paintings by artists such as David de Heem, van Brussel and Mignon, and these were used as reference works and models by the aspiring artists at the Lyon Beaux-Arts. The Salon des Fleurs opened in 1808, and the Lyon Museum was the only museum in France with a room entirely devoted to flower painting.

Kohler studied under J. M. Reignier, who was Professor of flower design at the Lyon Beaux-Arts from 1853 to 1884. His influence, and that of the Dutch Masters, had a profound effect on Kohler and other artists of the period, such as Fantin-Latour.
