Constantin Guys Ernest-Adolphe-Hyacinthe-Constantin, was born December 3, 1802, in Vlissingen, Netherlands. Guys was a Dutch-born French Crimean War correspondent, watercolor painter, and illustrator for British and French newspapers. At the age of 20, Constantin served in the cavalry, but only a little later toured Greece with Lord Byron. His career as an artist didn't start until he was about 40. Baudelaire called him the "painter of modern life," and wrote a long essay on Guys in which he extensively praised his works, under the pseudonym "Monsieur G". Robert de Montesquiou wrote a review of Guys that acknowledged Baudelaire's essay, compared Guys favorably to Whistler, and emphasized his portrayal of details of women's clothing, and horse carriages. Guys died in Paris, at the age of 90.
