RIBOT Theodule-Augustin (b. 1823, Saint-Nicolas-d'Attez, d. 1891, Colombes) Nationality : French

French painter. He first tried to study art at the trade school in Chalons, Ecole des Arts et Metiers. When his father died in 1840, Ribot had to help support his family. He worked as a bookkeeper in Rouen, married early, and left for Paris in 1845. There he did various jobs, studied in the atelier of Auguste-Barthelemy Glaize, and, in 1848, went to Algeria to work as a foreman for three years. Ribot first exhibited at a Paris Salon in 1861, when his kitchen scenes won generally favorable reviews. His early biographers claim that the dark, inky backgrounds of his pictures were the result of Ribot's painting by lamplight in his free evenings at home.
