Pair of Pastels on Board by Oelphin Enjolras
A Fine Pair of pastels on board by Oelphin Enjolras (1857-1945) French. Each in a wonderful carved frame set under tempered glass. Delphin Enjolras mastered the medium of pastel to perfection though he was equally adept working in watercolour, gouache and oil. Known for his dazzling studies of beautiful young women engaged in domestic activities, he also portrayed a number of Orientalist subjects, genre scenes and society portraits. In addition Enjolras painted some city views as well as beautiful landscapes such as ‘La Provinciale’ at the Musée Calvet d’Avignon and ‘Le Donjon de Polignac’ at the Musée de Le Puy-en-Velay. Enjolras was born on 13th May 1857 in the historic town of Coucouron in the Ardèche. His formal artistic training began in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under the esteemed Salon painter Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904) whose highly finished academic style and Oriental scenes enjoyed great popularity and set a fashion for others to follow. Enjolras also studied with Pascal Adolphe Jean Dagnan-Bouveret (1852-1929) and Gustave Claude Etienne Courtois (1853-1923) and is recorded as having furthered his artistic education at the Ecole de Dessin in Paris under Gaston Gérard (b. 1859). Having made his debut at the Société des Artistes Français in 1889 he was elected a member in 1901 and continued to show works with the Société up until 1909. EXAAX Unframed H - 20.50, W - 28
