Alphonse Legros was a French-British painter, etcher and medalist, with a close connection to realism. His artistic training began first in his hometown of Lyon, where he attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts and student of Maître Nicolardo, a house and portrait painter. Around 1851 Legros moved to Paris to continue his studies there. On the way there he spent about 6 months as a journeyman with the decorator and painter Jean Baptiste Beauchot in Lyon. Legros helped to decorate the chapel of Cardinal Bonald. Arrived in Paris, Legros was accepted at the Petite Ecole by Lecoq de Boisbaudran, which would later become the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs. There he made the acquaintance of colleagues like Charles-Antoine Cambon , Jules Dalou and Auguste Rodin . In addition, Legros also enrolled in evening classes at the École des Beaux-Arts. There he made friends with James McNeill Whistler .

Encouraged by his teachers, Legros first sent in 1857 two portraits for the Paris Salon. Of these, only one was accepted, the portrait of his father. This was Legros' first public exhibition of his work. The author Champfleury, who was a great follower of realism, became aware of the portrait in the salon and invited Legros to become a member of the realist group around Gustave Courbet . Around the same time Legros began to devote himself increasingly to the art of etching. Two of Legro's best-known works were L'Angelus and Ex Voto. After his one-year study trip through Spain, he joined in 1863 the Societé des Aquaforistes. In later years, Legros was a proponent of study trips and saw them as an important part of the artistic development. Therefore, he gave part of his income to increase a fund from which such trips should be funded for students.

Legros settled at the suggestion Whistles 1863 in London. There he first gave drawing and eraser courses. Later he was accepted as a teacher at the Kensington School of Art. From 1876 he became the successor of Edward Poynter as a professor at the Slade School. He taught there for over 17 years. Some young artists, later known as Slade Girls, were his students. Among them were the sisters Ella and Nelia Casella, Jessie Mothersole or Elinor Hallé. Legros got British citizenship in 1881. In 1892 he resigned from the professorship and devoted himself to the initial motives of his work: landscapes, Spanish castles and French farms, as he knew them from his childhood. © Meisterdrucke
