Couture, Thomas (French painter and teacher, 1815-1879)

Note: Often remembered for "The Romans of the Decadence," the sensation of the 1847 Salon that is now often cited as a classic example of bombastic academic painting. His informal works are more lively and he encouraged his students to directly study from landscape.
