On the reverse a label printed with a short biography of the artist Commentaires :
In 1834, Paul Édouard Baille won the first prize of the École des Beaux-Arts of Besançon with “Hagar in the Desert”. The city gave him funding to continue his studies at the Paris École des Beaux-Arts where he was a pupil of François-Édouard Picot. In his studio he trained artists such as Félix-Henri Giacomotti and Jules Machard. Encouraged by his master PICOT, Baille twice prepared for the Prix de Rome exam, but failed and then reached the age limit to enter the competition. Thanks to his personal wealth he was nevertheless able to go to Italy with the painter Charles HOUEL in May 1844, first visiting Rome, then Florence, Siena, Venice, Naples and Pompei. He returned to France in August 1845.
