Augustin Aubert

Augustin Raymond Aubert (1781-1847) was a French painter.


He was born in 1781 in Marseille . He studied at first under Joachim Guenin , and later with Pierre Peyron , in Paris, where he had moved in 1802. He returned to Marseilles shortly after.

In 1810, he was made Director of the School of Design in Marseille, and in that capacity directed the studies of numerous pupils afterwards. He painted history, landscape, and portrait subjects with much success. The museum and churches of his native town has many good examples of his art. Some of his main paintings, taken from sacred history, are of large dimensions.

He died on his estate near Marseille in 1847.
