HIPPOLYTE CAMILLE DELPY
Delpy was born in 1842 in Burgundy and spent his childhood there before attending primary school at St. Andre and later schooling at the College St. Jacques in Auxerre. He lived search of an idyllic landscape suitable for the subject of his paintings. His itinerant lifestyle, typical of other landscape painters, took him throughout France, Holland, England, and the United States. As an artist of nineteenth-century in France, Delpy had the opportunity to learn under two of the most well-established landscape painters, Jean-Bapiste-Camille Corot, and Charles-Francois Daubigny and it was from these that he gained incredible inspiration.
