Eugène Louis Lami

1800–1890, Paris

Eugène Louis Lami was mainly active as a watercolourist. He had been introduced to watercolour painting by Richard Parkes Bonington, whom he had met in 1817 in the Paris studio of Baron Antoine-Jean Gros, a painter of historical scenes. Lami was prized by his contemporaries not just as a master of deft and energetic brushwork, but also because, together with Garvani and Guys, he was one of the most interesting chroniclers of his time.
