(1833-1900) French artist and illustrator, a student of Gustave Doré; he is best known for illustrating several early instalments of Jules Verne's Voyages Extraordinaires sequence, beginning with Five Weeks in a Balloon (1865). His style, with its emphasis on outdoor scenes featuring heavily foregrounded Monsters and other creatures, stands in some contrast to the more intricate work of his main successor, Léon Benett.
