About François Joseph Tronville
Bar-le-Duc 1817 – 1875 Paris (?)
Landscape painter active in Paris.
Tronville’s signature has sometimes been misread as Trouville. Our painting is clearly signed Tronville.
There also reigns some confusion about his first names. The painter offered in 1843 a very mediocre oil painting representing the entrance of a harbour to the Muséee Barrois in his birthplace Bar-le-Duc. That painting dated 1842 was signed at the back “Louis François Joseph Tronville”. But his birth certificate does not mention that first name, Louis.
