Mainly self-taught, his early works were influenced by Delacroix and Rousseau. He was included in the Salon 1831. In the 1840s, he began painting landscapes in the forest of Fountainebleau of the Barbizon school. He is included in the collections of the Louvre; the Museum of Reims; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Cincinnati Art Museum.
