The Grobon brothers, François Frédéric Grobon (1815-1901/1902) and Anthelme Eugène Grobon (1820-1878), both of studied in Lyons, are recorded as having produced two other major works: the first an album entitled Fleurs after the designs of Redouté and the second Dessins inédits de P[sic]. Berjon published in Lyons between 1844 and 1850. In addition, they were responsible for Méthode Grobon frères, études progressives de Fleurs et de Fruits, depuis les premiers éléments jusqu’ à la compostion des groupes (Paris, 1850). A.E. Grobon is also recorded as having exhibited at both the Lyons Salon (from 1838) and the Paris Salon (between 1852 and 1870), his elder brother exhibited in Paris between 1842 and 1862 and in Lyons from 1842 to 1880, he ran an atélier.
Anthelme’s work distinguished by vibrant colors typical of the period is similar in many ways to Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840, and the great Lyonnais flower painter Antoine Berjon (1754-1843).
