Louis Gabriel Eugène Isabey was the son of the famous painter and miniaturist Jean-Baptiste Isabey (1767-1855).

Initially he wanted to become sailor but at the insistence of his father he became a painter.

He painted scenes of history, genre and landscapes and shipwrecks near the sea.

His first works are influenced by Eugène Delacroix and Richard Parkes Bonington. In particular, he used a lot of a gray color nuance.


In Paris he worked a lot in his studio together with students like Eugène Boudin, of which he was a master, Johan Barthold Jongkind and Durand-Brager. He was the friend of Horace Vernet.

In 1821, Isabey was chosen to accompany the diplomatic mission of Count de Mornay in Morocco.

From 1824, he stayed in Honfleur with the landscape and genre painter

Xavier Leprince, and moved to St. Simeon in 1826.

Isabel influenced among others Johan Barthold Jongkind and Eugène Boudin.

He is buried in the Père-Lachaise.
