Active 19th Century
A Flock of Sheep in a Landscape, with the Shepherd resting in the Shade
Born in Meulan in the mid 19th Century, Guillot concentrated on landscape painting depicting animals and life in the countryside around his locale. His idyllic landscapes offered a taste of idealised and peaceful country life that proved popular with his patrons. His debut at the Salon was in 1868 and he was a regular exhibitor. The Musée d'Art et d'Histoire Romain Rolland in Clamecy holds a fine collection of his landscapes.
