About this Artist

Auguste Flandrin is the brother of the painters Paul and Hippolyte Flandrin. He was based in Lyon and exhibited in both the Lyon and Paris Salons. There are two of his drawings in the collection of the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. Although there is not much known about René, he was respected enough as a painter by his peers to warrant a posthumous tribute exhibition of his work in the Paris Salon of 1843.
