Grandson of Jean-Baptiste Isabey (1767-1855) and son of Pierre Luc Charles Cicéri (1782-1868), great decorator and organizer of official ceremonies under the Restoration, Eugène Cicéri was also his pupil.
He made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1851, obtaining a third class medal the following year.
In turn, a painter and decorator, he is the author of numerous paintings for the Le Mans auditorium, also producing theater sets. Working a lot in Barbizon, on the banks of the Seine, the Marne, the Loing, but also in Brittany, and even in North Africa, Switzerland and Germany, he painted dense landscapes, in the sensibility of his uncle Eugène Isabey, under great changing skies.
Cicéri took part in the illustrations of the great collections of Baron Taylor and Charles Nodier, " Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l’ancienne France ", in particular with views of Brittany.
