Paul Baudry (1828-1886 ) was a French painter. He studied under Michel Martin Drolling, a sound but second-rate artist, and carried off the Prix de Rome in 1850 by his picture of Zenobia found on the banks of the Araxes. His talent from the first revealed itself as strictly academical, full of elegance and grace, but somewhat lacking originality. The works that crowned Baudrys reputation were his mural decorations, which show much imagination and a high artistic gift for color, as may be seen.   more from wikipedia »
