THEODULE RIBOT (French / 1823-1891)

Théodule-Augustin Ribot was a Realist painter of everyday scenes. He was born in Saint-Nicolas d'Attez and died in Colombes. He studied at the École des Arts et Métiers de Châlons, and subsequently in the studio of the classical painter Auguste Glaize. Ribot exhibited at the Salon from 1861, winning numbers of medals and being made a chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in 1878. Théodule Ribot was one of the founders of the Salon du Champs de Mars, alongside Alphonse Legros, Fantin-Latour, and Whistler, all united by their admiration for Gustave Courbet.
