Eugène Fromentin (1820–1876)

Fromentin, Eugène (frō-mo-ta‘). A French artist, critic, and writer of travel sketches; born in La Rochelle, Oct. 24, 1820; died in St. Maurice near La Rochelle, Aug. 27, 1876. A journey undertaken in the interest of art resulted in ‘A Year in the Sahel’ (5th ed. 1884) and ‘A Summer in the Sahara’ (9th ed. 1888). He has also entered another department of literature with ‘The Masters of a Former Day’ (1876), a happy bit of appreciation of old painters.
