Florent Fidèle Constant Bourgeois
Florent Fidèle Constant Bourgeois, a French landscape painter, engraver, and lithographer, was born in Paris in 1767. He studied under David, but spent much of his time in Italy. Landon mentions him as an artist distinguished for the richness of his compositions and the purity of his style, and describes three of his pictures as being in the manner of Gaspard Poussin. He died at Passy (now in Paris), in June 1841.
