Paul Desire Trouillebert (1829-1900) was born in Paris, France.  He is considered a portrait, genre and landscape painter from the French Barbizon School.

He made his debut at the Salon of 1865, exhibiting a portrait. He produced genre scenes and portraits paintings before turning to landscapes. Then, he produced many landscapes. His later works were strongly influenced by the tonal paintings of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. He painted on the banks of the Oise, Vienne, and Loire rivers in France, continuing the traditions of the Barbizon landscape painters. He was also interested in the orientalism and produced paintings of nudes.
