An artist of international standing in his own lifetime, Roybet excelled in the representation of musketeers and people of the Court from the eighteenth century. His technical virtusoity and skill in the rendering of silks and rich garments relate him to Rubens and the Flemish school.  Roybet was renowned amongst the French and American bourgeoisie, among his most famous portraits are: Comte Potocki, Jules Lefebvre, Cormon and Madame Olympe Heriot (1891). Such important works as Propos gallants 1893, La Main Chaude 1894, La Saraband 1895, L'Astronome, Les Savants 1901 and Le Refus des impots 1909, were all successfully exhibited at Salon. 

Well represented in many National and International collections, in particular the Musee Roybet Fould, Coubevoie, France houses a large selection of his works.
