Constant Troyon (1810-1865 ) French painter, was born in Sevres, near Paris.Troyon was an animal painter of the first rank, and was closely associated with the artists who painted around Barbizon. The technical qualities of his methods of painting are most masterly; his drawing is excellent, and his composition always interesting. It was only comparatively late in life that Troyon found his metier, but when he realized his power of painting animals he produced a fairly large number of good pictures in a few years.   more from wikipedia »
