Jacques Emile Blanche born in Paris on January 31, 1861 and died in Offranville (Seine Maritime), September 30, 1942
A pupil of the Lycée Condorcet, he made the decision to become a painter after his baccalaureate in 1880. He followed the advice of his mother and reluctantly spent some time in the studio of worldly painters Henri Gervex (1852-1929) and Fernand Humbert (1842-1934), although he was influenced by the impressionists Degas, Renoir and especially Manet. He started in 1882 at the Salon of French artists and will participate in all important fairs both in Paris and in London.
Very quickly, he was recognized as a portrait painter and he painted both All Paris and All London as well as the artistic and avant-garde elite of his time.
