After apenurious youth, when he studied under Lecoq de Boisbaudran, he had someconsiderable success at the Salon, and several of his works were bought by thestate. In 1863, however, he participated in the Salon des Refusйs, partly underthe influence of his friend Whistler. He came to London in the same year andtaught first at the South Kensington School of Fine Art and then at the Slade,where he exerted a great influence on those artists who were to become thenucleus of the New English Art Club. Although he could in no way be thought ofas an Impressionist, on the invitation of Degas he participated in the secondImpressionist exhibition and was an invaluable contact between Paris and Londonin the dissemination of Impressionist ideas. Pissarro was very dubious abouthis teaching methods, especially when Lucien, his son, was working under him.Legros' own paintings were rather sentimental genre scenes (The Angelus,1859; Musйe d'Orsay).
