Deveria was born in Paris in 1800. He was the son of a painter and was trained in art from an early age. He became famous for his lithographs, which were highly detailed and often depicted scenes from everyday life. Deveria's lithographs were popular in France in the 19th century and he was considered one of the leading lithographers of his time. He also painted portraits and landscapes, but it was his lithographs that brought him the most recognition. Deveria died in Paris in 1857.

Theodule Deveria was a French photographer who was born in 1831 and died in 1871. He was known for his portrait photography and was particularly adept at capturing the personality and character of his subjects. Deveria was also an accomplished painter and illustrator, and he often used his photography to inform his other artistic pursuits. Deveria began his career as a photographer in the mid-1850s, working in Paris and specialising in portraiture. He quickly gained a reputation for his skill and artistry, and his work was sought after by the city's elite. Deveria's portraits were notable for their naturalness and simplicity, as he sought to capture the essence of his subjects rather than simply create a flattering image. In addition to his portrait work, Deveria was also interested in landscape photography and travelled extensively throughout France and Europe to capture the beauty of the natural world. His landscape photographs were characterised by their vivid colours and dramatic compositions, and were highly influential in the development of the genre. Despite his short career, Deveria had a significant impact on the development of photography in France. His innovative approach to portraiture and landscape photography helped to establish photography as a legitimate art form, and his work continues to be studied and admired by photographers and art historians today.
