    Jules André (1807-1869), pictured here, was a landscape painter based in Sèvres. He was one of the circle of artists and photographers in the area, along with Robert and Victor Regnault (see Lot 24), that comprised a small but creative group that thrived outside the art center of Paris. He painted decorative panels for the Louvre and was awarded the Légion d’honneur for his accomplishments. Like Robert and Regnault, he worked at the porcelain manufactory at Sèvres.
