Comments from Peter Barry Devers:

Jean Pierre Marcel Numa Briguiboul, painter and sculptor, was born on November 2, 1837 in Sainte-Colombe-sur-l'Hers. A student of Léon Cogniet and Gleyre, he entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris on April 4, 1859, where he met Jean-Paul Laurens, Auguste Renoir and even Claude Monet. He attended the workshop at 6 rue Furstemberg. In 1861, he exhibited at the Salon: his painting is influenced by Spain, Orientalism as much as by the impressionism of Auguste Renoir and symbolism. In1863 he was awarded the third-class medal. He retired to Castres or Monte Carlo and from 1882, was no longer exhibiting at the Salon. He died on March 20, 1892 in Nimes. By successive decisions of the artist, then of his only son (1893) and the son's widow (1927) the city of Castres inherited all his artworks (both his own and that of others such as Goya). The self portrait was painted in 1861. (Translation from WikiMonde)
