Célestin-Joseph BLANC (Clelles 1817 - Paris 1888)

• Paris Salon, 1867, No. 151

Scene of medieval inspiration of a genre in vogue throughout the nineteenth century called troubadour style, crystallizing all the nostalgic regrets of the past. Falconry, still called flight hunting, is a very old art that knows its golden age in France in the Middle Ages and will then go out of fashion with the development of firearms. Shortly before the execution of our painting, Napoleon III in 1865 authorized the Club of Falconry of Champagne to dispose of the immense spaces of the military camps of Chalons.

Célestin-Joseph BLANC (Clelles 1817 - Paris 1888)
Son of a shoemaker from Clelles, he entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1839 where he was a student of Delaroche and Gleyre. He lives in Dauphiné from 1849 to 1857, travels to Italy and finally settles in Paris.
He exhibited at the Salon from 1844 to 1882 religious subjects, mythological scenes, genre scenes and many portraits. His works are preserved in many museums and public places; to note in the Musée Dauphinois: the portraits of H. Blanc-Fontaine and that of D. Rahoult, at the Consulate General of France in Rio-de-Janeiro the portrait of Louis-Philippe, last king of France.
