Émile-Charles Dameron was a student of both Léon Germain Pelouse and Constant Troyon.
Dameron exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1872 and 1907 during which time he was awarded a third-place medal in 1878 and a second-place medal in 1881. In 1876, Dameron won the Troyon prize for excellence in animal painting at the École des Beaux-Arts. He also exhibited at the Glasgow Institute and at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin.
Dameron is known for rural scenes with animals and peasants. His works exhibit a devotion to Realism. Having trained with Troyon, a master among the Barbizon School painters, Dameron is thought to be a second son of the Barbizon movement.
