Alexandre René Veron French, 1826-1897


Alexandre René Veron was born in Montbazon in 1826.  He studied with Delaroche and Charles François Daubigny; two noted artists of the Barbizon school.  Members of this group were naturalist landscape painters who worked in the Barbizon region of France. Typical of this school is the division of the canvas into darker tones and land on the left contrasted against the clearing on the right.  The tumultuous clouds that Veron has depicted are typical of his paintings of this period, and can be seen as a characteristic of his work. 


In 1848 Veron made his debut at the Paris Salon, where he continued to regularly exhibit his work for over thirty years.  He died in France in 1897.
