Louis Simon Cabaillot, son of Louis Joseph Cabaillot and Lazarette Bardoux, is known under his artist name Louis Simon Lassalle. He began his working life as draftsman and lithographer. From 1828 to 1854, Louis Simon Lassalle illustrated several hundred prints of various kinds. He lived in Paris, on 9 rue Baron-de-Saron (rue Baron-de-Saron street) and then moved in 1878 to the Village of Ecouen, where he died in 1885.
In between, he married Heloise Felicite Frin, and they had a son. His first exhibition took place at the 1850 Salon de Paris where he exhibited three paintings.
He received the congratulations of the artistic community. He was invited for all the following Salons de Paris until the last day of his life. He got orders from the French Government, like Inondations de 1856 in Tarascon (1856 flooding in Tarascon-South East of France) following the visit there of the Emperor Napoleon III. Influenced by Pierre Edouard Frere, Louis moved toward the genre painting and has shown a real talent for young children playing in the snow.
His fame brought to him students like Paul Louis Soutif, exhibiting at the 1870 Salon de Paris. Louis Simon Lassalle exhibited there, showing Le depart pour les vendanges (the grape harvest start). In 1862, Louis Simon Lassalle signed a manifest against the idea of comparing photography with any artistic field. At that time, many painters were afraid of a potential unfair competition between their beloved art and this new technique called photography.
The history is showing that they were wrong. One of the Louis Simon Lassalle painting Une partie de traineau (a sledge party) is on display in the Ecouen council meeting room.
