Adolphe Monticelli

(1824 - 1886)
Monticelli was born in Marseilles. He spent the years 1846-8 in Paris where he frequented the studio of Delaroche. On a second visit to Paris in 1856, he made the acquaintance of Diaz and was influenced by Diaz's use of colour and choice of subject. Van Gogh greatly admired Monticelli's work.
