Movement(s): Orientalism

Etienne Eugene Ciceri (1813 – 1890) was a French painter, illustrator, engraver and theatrical designer. He came from an artistic family. His father was the scenographer, Pierre-Luc-Charles Ciceri. He was also the grandson of the painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey, and his mother’s brother was the painter Eugene Isabey.

He received his first lessons from his father and his uncle and became influenced by the Barbizon School while still young. He decided to specialize in landscapes and was one of the first artists to work in Bourron-Marlotte, where he settled in 1849.

He was also a watercolorist and published albums of lithographs based on photographs; breaking with his Romantic predecessors to present scenes realistically. One of his most popular albums was derived from trips he made to the Alps and the Pyrenees: Les Pyrénées dessinees d’après nature et lithographiees and La Suisse et la Savoie, based on photographs by Frederic Martens [fr] taken from 1859 to 1865.

Later, he was one of the artists who participated in illustrating the travel writings of Baron Taylor and Charles Nodier, collected as Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l’ancienne France, featuring views of Brittany. A few of his works were done in North Africa, gaining him a reputation as an Orientalist.

Like his father, he also did theatrical set designs and some decorative work; notably at the Chateau de Montmort.
