Paul Albert Besnard (French, 1849 – 1934)

Maiden of Autumn

 

Besnard was born in Paris and studied at the Ecoles des beaux arts with Jean Bremond. He won the Prix de Rome in 1874. Up until 1880 he followed the academic tradition but then broke away completely, devoting himself to the study of colour and light, conceived by the Impressionists. This example illustrates his luminous technique providing a mysterious depth of field, the garland appearing clearly before the softer tones of the beauty.
