Émile Renard (1850-1930) Young Naked Woman

Late 19th century oil on panel painting signed RENARD attributed to Émile Renard (1850-1930) depicting a young naked woman in an alcove bedroom, beautiful composition symbolizing the great pictorial expressions of love as they manifested themselves in the 18th century with the exquisite and ambiguous gallantry of Watteau, the worldly and hedonistic pleasure of Boucher or De Troy, the bawdy, sometimes obscene equivocation of licentious illustrators, the satirical verve of Baudouin, the conjugal fervor of Greuze, and finally the voluptuousness, tender or passionate, by Fragonard. Beautiful period gilded wooden frame, dimensions: 34 cm X 28 cm. Good condition. Émile Renard was born on October 5, 1850 in Sèvres, where he began his drawing studies. His parents dream of bringing him into the Sèvres factory as a painter.

After these student successes, he entered the studio of Alexandre Cabanel and César de Cock. Returning from the war of 1870, he shines again, at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In 1873, he exhibited for the first time at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he became a member in 1883.
