Biography and information
 

Jean-Louis-Ernest Mesange (FR. Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier, January 21, 1815, Lyon — 21 Feb 1891, Paris) was a French painter.

Born in a poor family in 1815 in Lyon, very early showed a love and a rare ability to art. Being 19 years old in Paris, developed his talent for copying paintings of the old painters in the Louvre gallery, mostly the Dutch masters, and a short time he studied under L. Konya, but generally formed myself, not suffering the influence of any of the then leading figures of French painting. He was buried in Poissy (Yvelines), where he was mayor in 1846.
