"Paul Gervais "seaside With Three Nymphs" / Art Nouveau"Oil on canvas in very good condition, extremely delicate bill. Provenance: Château de Champremault, Loire Valley. How not to succumb to the ethereal charm of these 3 nymphs? Pupil of Jean Leon Gerome, GERVAIS is a painter of history of allegorical subjects and genre scenes, very fashionable late 19th / early 20th. Distinguished by the French State at the rank of Officer of the Legion of Honor, he carries out numerous private and phblic commissions. Among them can be mentioned: the ceiling of the Casino de Nice, the Prefecture and the Wedding Hall of the Capitol in Toulouse or the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo. Perpignan, too, has largely honored the talent of this artist from Toulouse: the spectacular painting "The arrival of Venus" adorns the grand staircase of the Hotel Pams and the Rigaud Museum has 3 of his works (exhibited at the Hôtel Pams ). Frame of time particularly well adapted to the work.
