About the Artist:

Victor-Marie Roussin (1812-1903), was a French painter and lawyer. He was born in Quimper and lived most of his life there and on the banks of the Odet in Plomelin. Roussin was a student of Louis-Auguste Lapito, François-Edmée Ricois and Evariste Luminais.

Roussin’s subjects are almost all of Breton inspiration – landscapes, seascapes and scenes from everyday life rendered with great tenderness. He was also General Counsel of Finistère and a founder of the Archaeological Society of Finistère. [DES-11/15]
