About the artist

Isidore Deroy (1797 – 1868, Paris) was a painter, aquarellist and lithographer. He was a pupil of the architect Félix and the painter Cassas (a neoclassicist of the early 19th century). He produced French landscapes and (sepia-)drawings of animals. A part of his works was included in the galleries of the duchess of Berry and the duke of Orléans. Deroy exhibited in the Salon de Peinture et de Sculpture in 1810, 1812, 1819, 1822 and 1827. He obtained a medal (third class) in the Salon as a lithographer. He treated many subject matters for the Musée de l’Amateur.
