Paul Delaroche was a French painter of mainly historical
subjects who had a marked influence on the English painter Ford Madox Brown and on other artists of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.
Delaroche's studio in Paris was highly regarded in its day: Jean François Millet worked there in the late 1830's.
Delaroche's approach was influential also on Regis François Gignoux, a landscape painter who emigrated from France to the United States, settled in Brooklyn, New York, and became an important member of the American "luminist' or "Hudson River" school of landscape painters.
