Emile Louis Thivier (1858-1922)

Thivier, born in Paris, studied with Isidore Pils, Karl Lehmann and Desiré Laugée. He first exhibited in the Salon des Artistes Français in 1880 and in 1887 he was elected to the membership of the Artistes Français. He was awarded medals and prizes in exhibitions in 1892, 1896, 1900 (Exposition Universelle), and 1901. In 1896 he exhibited an important history painting “Les Mercenaires au defilé de la Hache” which was purchased by the French government for the museum of Rouen. Early in his career he became known as an important history painter and was also a much sought after portraitist. During the last twenty years of his life he dedicated himself to landscape painting and produced many scenes with shepherdesses and sheep.
