BIOGRAPHY
Eugène Lavieille began his career engraving works by Jean-François Millet and Charles Emile Jacque and was, by 1841, studying with the greatest French landscape painter of the century, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot.  His first of many exhibits at the Paris Salon was in 1844; he went on to win medals there in 1849, 1864 and 1870, and was made a knight of the Légion d’Honneur in 1878.  He lived and painted in Barbizon for many years and also painted the forest of Fontainebleau.  After 1878, Lavieille moved to the Seine-et-Marne district and painted the countryside west of Chartres.
