BIO:A member of the Barbizon School, Richet was a noted painter of landscapes, still lifes and genre scenes. Born in Solesne in 1847, the artist showed great talent at an early age and initially studied with Ambroise Detrez at the Academy of Valenciennes. His skills developed rapidly under the tutelage of such esteemed artists as Díaz de la Peña, Jules Lefebvre and Gustave Boulanger. Richet was also greatly influenced by Théodore Rousseau's powerful and mystical depictions of nature.
Collectorship of Richet's art gained momentum throughout Europe, culminating in the artist's debut in the Paris Salon of 1869, as well as inclusion in the Salon des Artistes Français. Richet is considered an important and respected figure from the Barbizon School and his paintings continue to be in great demand by collectors and museums throughout the world.
