Constant Troyon, (1810-1865), From the very beginning of his artistic career, Troyon was interested in landscape painting, and produced many studies in the forests of Meudon, Compiègne and Saint-Cloud. He presented his first works, still influenced by his Neo-Classical training, at the 1833 Salon. His meeting with the painter Jules Dupré was a decisive moment for him. Dupré encouraged Troyon to work out in the open air, and taught him to observe and appreciate the wild locations of the forest of Fontainebleau as well as the aesthetics of Theodore Rousseau, Camille Corot and Narcisse Diaz de la Peña. However, while still remaining loyal to his friends, Troyon was gradually moving towards animal painting, and achieving considerable success with it. He liked painting dogs, and revealed an exceptional talent as a colourist in his hunting scenes.
