  • Artist Biography
    • A fine quality late 19th century French School painting of an elegant lady by a shoreline.This charming oil on canvas is painted in a high-quality manner and is the work of a highly competent artist trained in a rigorous manner as set down by the prestigious Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In preparation, many sketches and studies would have been undertaken by the artist for the female figure and the landscape. The artist would have then painted this canvas in their studio as a culmination of their work. French academic painting of the late 19th century is admired for its thoughtful composition as much as its attention to detail and this work is no different, balancing a gentle portrait of a lady with a calming coastal landscape. The fact that the artist has not signed this work suggests that it may have been painted as a specific commission, which were often unsigned.
