Labouchere, Pierre Antoine

Labouchere, Pierre Antoine a noted French Protestant painter, was born at Nantes, November 26, 1807, and studied in Germany and in England. He had been placed at first in a commercial house at Antwerp, and made, in 1827, a journey to the United States, as secretary of M. Bates, and in 1832 went to China as supercargo of a vessel of Nantes, which belonged to his elder brother. Painting, however, seems to have been his predominating passion, and a visit to Antwerp decided his vocation, and he accordingly became a pupil of Paul Delaroche. He died at Paris in 1873. Labouchere chiefly painted historical subjects, especially those of the Reformation in Germany. He left a set of subjects drawn from the life of Luther, which have been engraved, and are accompanied with a text by Merle d'Aubigne. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale. s.v.
