Charles-Edouard Boutibonne, Pest 1816 – Interlaken 1897, Hungarian school. He studied in Vienna under F. Ammerling, and in Paris under Deveria and Winterhalter. He painted much in Paris and his parents were French and for these reasons he is sometimes thought to belong to the French school of painting.

He was mostly a portraitist and a genre painter, both in oil and in pastel. In Paris he painted mostly the aristocracy and entourage of Napoleon III as well as the monarch himself.
