IDBURY PRINTS

ALPHONSE TRIMOLET (French / active 1867-1881)

Alphonse Louis Pierre Trimolet was the nephew of the Barbizon School painter Charles-François Daubigny. Orphaned at a young age, Alphonse Trimolet was taken in by Daubigny, and tutored by Daubigny and by Geoffroy-Duchaume. Trimolet's own father Joseph-Louis Trimolet (1812-1843) had been a book illustrator, and Alphonse Trimolet gravitated naturally to printmaking. Many of his prints were published by Cadart, and in the 1870s he was one of the contributors to Richard Lesclide's short-lived journal Paris à l'eau-forte. Trimolet specialized in views of Paris. Like both his parents, Alphonse Trimolet died of tuberculosis, sometime around 1892.
