DECAMPS Alexandre Gabriel (b. 1803, Paris, d. 1860, Fontainebleau) Nationality : French

French painter, draughtsman and printmaker. With his brother Maurice-Alexandre (1804-52), the art critic and essayist, he spent some years of his youth at Orsay, in Picardy, 'in order to learn to rise early and know the hard life of the fields'. The artwork of the peasants stimulated an interest in drawing. He entered the atelier of Etienne Bouhot (1780-1862) in 1816. Towards the end of 1818 he left Bouhot to study under Alexandre-Denis Abel de Pujol, quitting his studio in 1819-20 in order to embark upon a career as an independent professional artist. Memories of Orsay remained his point of departure throughout his working life, and in this sense he was a self-trained artist.
