Fine Art

Delpy, H. C.

Hippolyte Camille Delpy was a landscape painter active in the late nineteenth century, well known today for his compositions representative of the Barbizon school. Delpy was trained under Corot and Daubigny, and developed his own work, influenced primarily by Daubigny. His landscapes can be described as naturalist, resulting from a direct observation of nature. Delpy made his debut as a Salon painter in 1869. He enjoyed considerable success, and was awarded medals and honorable mentions for his works. He became a member of the Societe des Artistes Francais in 1896, and participated in the World Exposition of 1900. The city of Paris held two major exhibitions of his work in 1890 and 1908.
