Émile Tabary (1857-1927).
The painting – which depicts a Parisienne beauty in her boudoir lit by an Art Nouveau table lamp – is signed by the artist and further signed, dated 1924 and inscribed verso. The painting was exhibited in Paris at the Salon de l'École Française in 1924, and is presented in a fine quality, newly commissioned gold metal leaf frame.
As with all the paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary.
Like his contemporary Delphin Enjolras, Émile Tabary was a student of Jean-Léon Gérôme at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and made his name with atmospheric paintings of sensuous Belle Epoque beauties frequently lit by a single warm light source.
