Items (Guillaume, L.M.D.) (L)
Collection Item
Born in Nantes, France, Guillaume studied art in Paris before coming to the U.S. and settling in Richmond in 1857. He was probably the best-trained portraitist working in the South during the Civil War and is known for his portraits of Confederate generals, including the 6 equestrian portraits in this gallery. Like many painters, Guillaume used himself as a subject at various ages; this was one of his earliest, as a young man. The Olla Podrida Gallery features another self-portrait depicting himself as a successful middle-aged man and doting husband of the wife in its companion piece.
