Charles Meryon
French, (1821–1868)
He was a successful printmaker. He was the illegitimate son of an Englishman, Dr. Charles Lewis Meryon, and Narcisse Chaspoux, a dancer at the Paris Opéra. He was colorblind (unable to distinguish between red and green), as is apparent in his pastels. He suffered mental illness, and died in the famous insane asylum at Charenton (in a suburb of Paris).
