Signed Bouquet C. Gontier, Nineteenth Century. flag

Object description :

"Signed Bouquet C. Gontier, Nineteenth Century."
This very bright bouquet of flowers is signed C. Gontier, for Clément or Camille Gontier, between the two my heart swings, the signatures of the one and the other are very close, to believe that it is the same painter, and it is quite possible that their works were confused and attributed to one or the other a little at random (at least for the still lifes). They are contemporary and they must have exhibited at the same time ... One seems born around 1840, the other was born in 1876, they both exposed to the Salons of the French Artists, we do not know the date of death of Camille Gontier while Clément Gontier died in 1918, the latter seems to have known more, he was the student of Jean Paul Laurens then Benjamin Constant, was second in the painting competition for the price of In Rome, he received the prize of the Julian Academy and a third class medal in 1904. Their compositions are very close and often highlight, in the center of the bouquet, one or two flowers fleshy, white and bright. A work by Pierre Camille Gontier is kept at the Saint Omer Museum and another at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle in England. Oil on canvas signed lower left. Frame dimensions 73 cm x 63 cm, frame 55 cm x 46 cm.
