Pierre-Antoine LabouchÞre was a water-colourist and a painter of historical scenes and landscapes. His first career was in business, with a commercial house in Antwerp, for whom he travelled to the United States and to China. However, in 1836 he renounced commerce for art, and after a year in Italy, came to Paris and studied under Paul Delaroche. He subsequently left for Africa, returning with a substantial number of water-colours. He débuted at the Paris Salon around 1843, obtaining a third-class medal. He is known above all for his historical scenes of the sixteenth century and his illustrations of the life of Martin Luther.
