Auguste-Xavier Leprince
Paris 1799 - 1826 Nice

Private collection
Rights held by:

Like his father and two brothers, Leprince became a landscape painter. He is best known for his 17th-century Dutch-inspired agrarian scenes. His career benefited from the support of a group of private collectors called the Society of Friends of the Arts, which purchased his work and that of many of his contemporaries, including Eugène Isabey (with whom he shared a studio), Théodore Gudin, and Richard Parkes Bonington. Leprince exhibited at the Salon from 1819 until his early death at age 27. He left behind a significant number of works in his studio.
