Lot Essay

Sir Nicholas Goodison commented: ‘The view is of the end of the apse from the north towards Rue Ste Catherine. Jacques-Émile Blanche (1861-1942) was best known 'as a brilliant and facile portraitist and decorative artist' (H. Osborne (ed.), Oxford Companion to Twentieth Century Art). Born in France, his work was appreciated in England and he exhibited at the R.A.’

We are very grateful to Dr Wendy Baron for her assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.
