Object description :

""Le triomphe de la mort",André LEROUX, 1938"
Oil on canvas depicting a massacre scene (during the Hundred Years War?), With in the center a skeleton clad in armor, riding a steed, and brandishing trophies. We think of the triumph of death. The title of "Phantom of Glory", or "Massacre of the Innocents" had also been given for this painting. Signed lower right A.Leroux. We have the date of 1938 for an engraving made by Omer Bouchery, which allows us to date the painting. André Leroux is first of all the pupil of his father Auguste. He was awarded 1st in the Beaux Arts competition in 1929, where he became a student of Jean Pierre Laurens, Louis Roger. He won the Legay-Lebrun prize from the Institut de France and the great gold medal. Painter of figures and history, his classicism and romanticism set him apart in his time.He exhibits almost every year at the Salon des Artistes Français. 73x91 with frame
