An excerpt from Wikipedia:
Joseph, Pierre, Tancrède Latour (April 17, 1806 - March, 1 mars 1863) was a French Romantic Drawer and painter. His works are hosted by several museums in South of France.
From the École des Beaux-Arts of Toulouse, he teaches drawing at the Institution des Feuillants and his artist studio was frequented by Charles de Saint Félix, Eugène Fil, Jules de Lahondés, Maxime Lalanne, Louise de Carayon-Talpayrac, Eugène de Malbos and Jacques Raymond Brascassat.
He is more recognized for his drawings and his landscapes from nature - mostly of Pyrenees - than for his paintings.
His works are hosted in the Gaillac Museum of Fine Arts, the Vaurais Country Museum in Lavaur, the Pyrenean Museum in Lourdes, the Musée Fabre in Montpellier and the Paul-Dupuy Museum in Toulouse.
