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)
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
