Jules François Felix Fleury-Husson, who wrote under the name Champfleury, was a French art critic and novelist, a prominent supporter of the Realist movement in painting and fiction.

In 1843 Fleury-Husson moved to Paris. He met Charles Baudelaire and the next year started writing art criticism under the pen-name "Champfleury" for the journal L'Artiste. He was one of the first to promote the work of Gustave Courbet, in an article appearing in an issue of Le Pamphlet in 1848.

In 1850 he advocated the work of El Greco, and wrote about the Le Nain brothers and Maurice Quentin de La Tour. He also had a brief affair in 1851 with Eveline Hańska, the widow of his friend Honoré de Balzac.

He edited the periodical, Le réalisme in 1856 and 1857.

“A kitten is the delight of a household. All day long a comedy is played out by an incomparable actor.”
Champfleury, The Cat Past and Present

“On a pêché, dans le bassin des Tuileries, les petits poissons rouges, afin de les préserver du froid.”
Champfleury, Chien-Caillou

“Mon maître le lecteur, que ceci soit pour vous un avertissement ! Ne dites jamais que vous savez ce que vaut l’aune de telle histoire. Souvent cette histoire si gaie, si folle, si amusante, aura germé toute gonflée de larmes, de faim, de misères, dans l’esprit de celui qui l’écrira plus tard.”
Champfleury, Chien-Caillou
