Changing Pasture (detail), oil on canvas by John Leslie Thomson (1851–1929), photo credit: Manchester Art Gallery
(b Paris, 15 Feb. 1817; d Paris, 19 Feb. 1878). French landscape painter, one of the earliest exponents of plein-air painting in France. He came from a family of artists and was taught initially by his father Edmé-François (1789–1843), likewise a landscape painter; he also learnt a good deal by copying 17th-century Dutch pictures in the Louvre.
