LOUIS DESCHAMPS (French / 1846-1902)

Louis Henri Deschamps was born in 1846 in Montélimar (Drôme). From 1870-1876 Deschamps studied under Alexandre Cabanel at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, and like many of Cabanel's pupils remained loyal to the academic aesthetics of the Salon de Paris, where he exhibited from 1873, seemingly oblivious to the contemporary earthquake of Impressionism. From 1883 Deschamps concentrated on pictures of what the art bible Bénézit describes as "sujets misérablistes", notably seduced girls and abandoned children.
