In the shade. Camille Flers Art Versailles
Born rue des Amandiers in Paris, Camille Flers is the son of Jean Charles Flers and Marie Thérèse Bloufflerd, originally from Annet-sur-Marne. Flers is a pupil of Joseph François Paris and learns the art of pastel with a pastellist from the school of Maurice Quentin de La Tour. Flers began at the Salon of 1831 where he sent his Village of Pissevache. He then exhibited his landscapes and pastels at the Salon until 1863.
He left for Brazil in 1821. In Rio de Janeiro, he was a cook, then a painter and finally a dancer at the Imperial Theater. He returned to France in 1823.
On November 11.1826, in Paris, he married Louise Adèle Clauss, daughter of Jean Marx Clauss, porcelain maker.
This “romantic-naturalist”, as he calls himself, is one of the first to work on the motif in the forest of Fontainebleau, in Barbizon, where he joined Jacques Raymond Brascassat, Antoine-Louis Barye or Alexandre- Gabriel Decamps. He will only live in Paris in winter and that for seven years. From 1848, he is considered one of the masters of the realist movement.
Camille Flers is buried in Paris in the Père-Lachaise cemetery.
