Paul Rossert was born in Lannoy near Lille, Northern France on the border with Belgium in 1841.
A painter of landscapes, marines and elegant ‘fin de Siècle’ genre subjects he had studied extensively in Paris under Karl Ernest Lehmann (1814-1882) , professor at the Ecole des Beaux Art in Paris and under the renowned Charles Emile Carolus-Durand (1838-1917), one of the founders of the ‘Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts’, and a director of the French Academy in Rome.
Rossert painted in Paris and Normandy and on the Normandy coast, he would portray Boudin-like scenes of elegant figures gathered on the beach, in Trouville or Honfleur.

A Contemporary of both Eugene Boudin (1824-1898) and Jean Béraud (1849-1935) he was influenced and a rival to both.
His works can be found in museums in: La Rochelle and Saint Brieue and in many important collections throughout the world.
