Eugène Louis Gabriel Isabey (22 July 1803 – 27 April 1886) was a French painter, draftsman, and printmaker.

Born in Paris, the son of Jean-Baptiste Isabey, a painter as well, Eugène Isabey studied and worked at the Louvre Museum. Early in his career his paintings consisted of mostly watercolor landscapes. In 1820, he travelled to Normandy and Britain painting land and seascapes.

Isabey journeyed with the French Expedition to Algiers in 1830 as an illustrator. The expedition's paintings sold poorly on the market and encouraged him to switch to narrative and historical painting. He was later selected to become one of Louis-Philippe’s court painters. [1](dal web)

After spending his formative years in the Louvre Museum amidst the most accomplished artists of the day, Eugène Isabey initially painted mostly landscapes in watercolor. In 1820 he began to travel, first to Normandy and then to Britain, where he discovered a freer watercolor technique. On several occasions he returned to Normandy, painting seascapes and landscapes that helped to solidify his reputation as one of the leading proponents of Romantic views, both dramatic and placid. Isabey also made drawings of other scenic areas of France to illustrate travel volumes and dashed off many landscape drawings and watercolors throughout his life. As the official artist accompanying the French expedition to Algiers in 1830, Isabey illustrated the account of the expedition. Disillusioned when these drawings and oil studies failed to sell on his return, he chose another subject area. His success with an anecdotal genre painting at the 1831 Salon led him to a new specialty in historicizing genre painting. Isabey's skill with elegant court dress and elaborately re-created ceremonies of earlier centuries, in turn, led to an appointment as one of Louis-Philippe's court painters. In his later years, he painted brightly colored scenes of violence, massacres, duels, and looting. (dal web)
