born at Paris in September, 1825, was pupil of Eugene Delacroix. He
has earned a brilliant reputation in genre painting, by
illustrating familiar scenes of domestic life, where the principal
subjects are almost exclusively dogs and cats. Among his most
remarkable contributions to the annual Salons, we cite: Interior of
a Stable (1852); Jack Sam Shot in the Salon of 1875; The Cats of
the Cardinal de Richelieu, Fallen Greatness (1878), etc. M. Eugene
Lambert pbtained medals in 1865, 1866 and 1870, and the decoration

of the Adulterers (1876), and especially The Liberator of the
Territory (1878), a grand political contemporary scene; The Day of
