Francois-Joseph-Frederic Roux (1805-1870)
By 1822, at the age of seventeen, he was already painting for profit in his father's studio having developed a style that would have been the envy of many an older practitioner. He became an apprentice to Horace Vernet in the 'atelier Vernet' in Paris at a young age and was soon to embrace great success both within the French court and elsewhere, so much so that he decided in 1835 to move to Le Havre where he became a hydrographer and "painter of marines". His watercolours of Le Havre are admired particularly for their high quality and within his own lifetime he was to receive international acclaim.
