Nude - Léon Glaize (1842-1931)

Léon Glaize 1842-1931

His father was Auguste Barthélemy Glaize (1807-1893), one of the great masters of his generation.

He studied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris in Jean Léon Gérôme's studio.
When he was just 17, he took part in the Salon for the first time, receiving an honorable mention.

He was present at all the major salons, first with mythological and public subjects, then with portraits, which became his specialty. His masters included Jean Léon Gérôme and Victor Hugo.

In 1866, he was awarded the prestigious Prix de Rome.

Glaize received numerous commissions for public and religious buildings:
the ceiling of the Théâtre des Arts in Rouen (destroyed during the Second World War), the marriage hall in the town hall of the twentieth

arrondissement, and the friezes in the Salon des Arts at the Hôtel de Ville in Paris. He also created the decorations for the Saint-Louis d'Antin church and the Saint François-Xavier chapel in the Saint-Merri church.

On several occasions, Léon Glaize was a member of the jury for the annual Salons, and a member of the jury for the Prix de Rome. He was made a chevalier (1877) and then an officier de la Légion d'honneur (1906).

Our work is a classic academic painting of great finesse and lightness.
