Eugène Fromentin fue un pintor y escritor francés.

Estudió con el pintor paisajista Louis Cabat. Fue uno de los primeros intérpretes pictóricos de Argelia, habiendo podido visitar, siendo bastante joven, la tierra y las gentes que le sugirieron la mayor parte de sus obras, y almacenarlas en su memoria, así como en sus archivos, con los detalles pintorescos y característicos de la vida norteafricana.

Fue muy influido por el estilo de Eugène Delacroix. Sus obras se distinguen por su sorprendente composición, gran habilidad y brillantez del color.

Frases Eugène Fromentin

„What motive had a Dutch painter in painting a picture? None. And notice that he never asked for one. A peasant with a drunken red nose looks at you with his heavy eye and laughs with open mouth showing his teeth, raising a jug; if it is well painted, it has its value.“

—  Eugène Fromentin

Quote from Eugène Fromentin: a Life in art and Letters, ed. Barbara Wright; Peter Lang, Bern 2000, p. 276

„The art of painting is only the art of expressing the invisible by the visible. Whether its roads be great or small, they are sown with problems which it is permitted to sound for one's self as truth, but which it is well to leave in their darkness as mysteries.“

—  Eugène Fromentin
