BAIL Antoine Jean
Born on April 8, 1830 in Chasselau (Rhone). Death in 1918.
Painter of genre, landscapes, interiors, still lifes, engraver.
Antoine Bail studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. He began in the salon of this city, in 1854 with an Interior of Atelier. Criticism proved very favorable to this canvas, the skilful lighting of which was much praised.
Subsequently, Bail painted lot of interiors. He painted also lot of still lifes, scenes of familiar life and some landscapes, but he is less successful in this latter genre. His numerous canvases were a great success.
Its main qualities are a certain accuracy of drawing, and a real address of composition and enhancement of the effects of light. We also owe A.Bail, some pretty beautiful etchings. He signed Bail or A.Bail
