Life:

Lambron des Piltières was a student of Flandrin and Charles Gleyre. He made his début at the Salon in 1859. His works include La Vierge aux oiseaux (Musée d'Angers) and Une Réunion d'amis (Musée du Mans). Lambron had a picture rejected in the Salon of 1863, the same year that Symphony in White, No. I: The White Girl (YMSM 38) was rejected. According to Fantin-Latour Lambron's rejected painting was thought to be very good and was to be a success at the Salon des Réfuses (#01079). However, his painting was not exhibited there.
