Mother and daughter - Emile Friant (1863-1932)

Mother and daughter, charcoal on paper by Emile Friant (1863-1932), preparatory drawing for "En pleine Nature".

Emile Friant was born in 1863 in Dieuze in Moselle and arrived in Nancy with his family in 1872 following the Franco-German War. He had a precocious talent for drawing and at the age of 15 he exhibited at the Salon de Nancy where he was already noticed.
He obtained a scholarship to study at the Beaux-Arts in Paris in the studio of Alexandre Cabanel where he met his Nancy friend Victor Prouvé.
In 1882 he exhibited two paintings at the Salon des Artistes Français, one of which, L'Enfant Prodigue, was bought by the state.
One of his most famous works, La Toussaint, was presented at the Universal Exhibition of 1889; the artist received the gold medal of the exhibition and was made a knight of the Legion of Honor.
In 1924, he presented "En pleine Nature" at the Salon des Artistes Français. This immense canvas is the result of several years of work, and the drawing we present is probably part of the first studies of the painting.
This work illustrates well the maturation process of the artist, and the importance of drawing in his work.
