Delphin Enjolras Large Oil on Canvas Painting of Semi Nude Lady. About Artist: Delphin Enjolras (1857 Coucouron –1945 Toulouse) was a French academic painter. Enjolras painted portraits, nudes, interiors, and used mostly watercolours, oil and pastels.He was born in Coucouron, Ardeche, son of Casimir Enjolras and Delphine Laurens. Enjolras studied under water-colorist Gaston Gerard at the "Ecole de Dessin de la Ville de Paris", as well as Jean-Leon Gerome at the Beaux-Arts, and Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret. Enjolras painted mainly landscapes in his early career; later it became evident that his love was for painting women. He changed genres, focusing mainly on the portraiture of elegant young women by either lamplight or black lighting. He would become an excellent painter of nudes, and many of his later works, such as "La Sieste" are of an erotic and sensual nature. From 1890 and onwards, Enjolras exhibited his works at the Paris Salon, joining the Societe des Artistes Francais in 1901. Also, the Musee du Puy and Musee d'Avignon both have collections of his works. Frame 63" x 46", Painting 45" x 30"
