Edouard Bertin (Pierre-Louis De Laval, 1815)

François Édouard Bertin (1797–1871) was a French painter born in Paris, the son of the renowned journalist Louis-François Bertin. Édouard studied under Girodet-Trioson and Bidauld. He represented the details and general character of a landscape with great skill, but was less successful in his colouring. He was inspector of the Beaux Arts, and from 1854 director of the Journal des Débats. Bertin died in Paris in 1871.
