Fille de Fleur de Concarneau


  • Additional Information

'Fille de Fleur de Concarneau' by François-Alfred Delobbe (1835-1920).

The painting – which depicts a girl selling peonies in Concarneau on the coast of Brittany in North-West France – is signed by the artists and presented in a newly commissioned gold metal leaf frame.

François Alfred Delobbe entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts at the age of 16, where he studied with the great history painter Thomas Couture, before entering the studio of the most important French Academic painter of the period William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

In 1861 Delobbe made his debut at the Salon in Paris and would continue to exhibit there over the following decades. After visiting the town of Concarneau his choice of subjects was increasingly drawn from Breton life and in particular working women and girls at work who worked in the fields, along the coastline, and in the town.
