French, 1835–1893


"Emmanuel Lansyer's father did not want him to become a painter and he was made to study architecture. At first he studied under Dauvergne and worked under the direction of Viollet-le-Duc in 1857. He studied painting with Lamothe, Glaize, Courbet and Harpignies. He exhibited his work at the Paris Salon, in various Salons in Brittany and the Vendée, and at the Exposition Universelle in 1878. He was awarded a second-class medal in 1869 and a third-class medal in 1874. When he died he bequeathed his house and the canvases it contained to the town of Loches, where he is buried. It was inaugurated as the Lansyer Museum by the town council in 1902. He was also a poet" (Benezit, Dictionary of Artists, Gründ, 2006).
