Gaspar Jean Lacroix


Lacroix was born in Turin from French parents. Student of Corot, he makes his beginnings at the Salon in 1834 with Vue prise à Aulnay and participates until 1878 with various landscapes of Auvergne, Pyrénées-Orientales, of the Lyonnais, Dauphiné (Crémieu), of Provence (he accompanies Corot in 1836 to Montpellier). But, the surroundings of Paris dictate the essence of his inspiration: the banks of the Marne, the forest of Fontainebleau, Palaiseau (the park of the Gigoux villa). His landscapes painted in clear tonalities, that he often brings to life by adding characters. He stay for a while in Italy. A view of Rome’s countryside appears in the Salon of 1841.

He received a third-place medal in 1842, and a second place medal in 1843 and 1848.
