{Artist} Lucien Victor Guirand de Scevola

Happy Monday darlings! I hope you have a sweet weekend & you're ready for the new week & all it has to bring. My weekend was relaxed and calm. It's been a while for an Art post, so I thought to share one of my favourite painters with you. I tried to keep it short, so it wasn't too much to read. I hope you'll enjoy them too & have a gorgeous day!

Born in Sete, France in 1871, Lucien-Victor Guirand de Scevola was a painter known for his versatility and ability to adopt a great number of different styles. He studied  at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts in Paris under Fernand Cormon and Pierre Dupuis. His work was exhibited in the Salon des Artistes Francais from 1889 on and he left a large and varied body of work including landscapes, flower paintings and society portraits. From 1894 he specialised in Symbolist paintings evoking young women, inaccessible and diaphanous.
De Scevola was a member of the Société des pastellistes de France and the Comité de la Société des beaux-arts de Paris. He became an Officer of the Légion d'Honneur in 1914. He was recruited by the French Department of Defense together with other painters and stage artists during the First World War, as a result of this he is credited for being the inventor of military camouflage along with Eugène Corbin and painter Louis Guingot. He died in 1950.

  24. O yes, his work is gorgeous -- brilliant handling of colour, and light and dark, and his unusual subjects set him apart from the likes of Waterhouse or Leighton. Have a beautiful, creative week dear friend :)
