He painted portraits and some genre scenes which he exhibited at the salon des Artistes Français in the 1880s (notably On the beach in 1882 which was noticed by critics). A pupil of Alexandre Cabanel, he kept the precise drawing, the clarity of the colors, and the fine light which accentuates the contours. Coming from an old family of Saône-et-Loire, the latter was a doctor, mayor of Cluny, deputy (from 1885) and newspaper editor. It was also supported by the main radical daily in the department, L'Union Républicaine, published in Mâcon. He will be called by Georges Clemenceau in 1906 to occupy the post of Under-Secretary of State for Posts and Telegraphs in his government. The portrait of this young woman is very successful. There is personality accentuated by the pose in this young wife. Pretty chiaroscuro effects with pretty white highlights highlight the skin tone. And the simplicity of the frame and the layout against a background of nature - perhaps a garden - gives a very natural air to this portrait certainly taken on the spot!
