Paul Chabas, younger brother of the painter Maurice Chabas (1862-1947), was born in Nantes where he studied at the Lycée Georges-Clemenceau. Under Napoleon I, Captain Chabas had three sons, François, Frédéric and Oscar. François becomes a famous Egyptologist; a room bears his name in the department of Egyptian antiquities of the museum of Cairo. Frédéric, the second son, loves research like his brother and becomes chief engineer of bridges and roadways and domains. The third is obliged to take over the paternal business house in Nantes, "Le gout goutteux". Created by Mr. Chabas, drapery merchant, it is marked by a talking sign in wrought iron dating back to 1798. Paul Chabas was born into a cultivated and learned family. Her father, Oscar, married Marguerite Ferrus, eleven years younger. They have three sons, Paul Chabas being the last of the siblings. He studied at the Lycée de Nantes and at that time he thought of joining the Navy, but continued to draw. The eldest son took over the business, but the other two, Maurice and Paul, entered the Académie Julian at rue du Dragon in Paris at a very young age. The father goes to Paris for the artistic education of his two sons. They live in Place Saint-Michel and then, around 1886, just after the death of the painter Paul Baudry, they rent his apartment and the adjoining workshop. Paul Chabas was trained at the Académie Julian between 1883 and 1887. He was a pupil of William Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury. In 1885, Paul Chabas exhibited at the Salon of French artists. He will present his works there constantly throughout his artistic career. Her favorite subjects are subtly erotic nudes and also paints numerous portraits. Paul Chabas' work is quickly recognized. He obtained an honorable mention in 1892 with Portrait of the artist's wife (Limoux, Musée Petiet), a 3rd class medal in 1895 for his canvas Chez Alphonse Lemerre in Ville-d'Avray, a 2nd class medal in 1896 for the painting Last rays and the national price of the Salon in 1899 for the work Joyeux Ebats (Museum of Arts of Nantes). Obtaining this prize gives him access to a scholarship which allows him to travel two years abroad, from Italy to Greece, from Turkey to Algeria and Norway. During his trip to Greece, he obtained the commission for the portrait of the eldest daughter of the Minister of France, the Count of Ormesson and that of a royal princess. In 1890, Paul Chabas married the daughter of a renowned journalist at the time, Robert Mitchell, whose portrait he produced (private collection). He rubbed shoulders with the Parisian bourgeoisie and went to live a large part of his life in Paris. Paul Chabas's painting is part of the current of academic art. In the 1890s, Chabas illustrated a few books by authors like Paul Bourget and Alfred de Musset. Paul Chabas is also a man whose career is crowned with civil honors. In 1902, he was appointed knight of the Legion of Honor. He was subsequently promoted to officer of this order in 1913 then commander in 1928. But his recognition did not stop with these awards. From 1921 until 1937, he took the place of Luc-Olivier Merson as director of the Institut de France. He immediately became president of the Society of French Artists from 1926 to 1936 and succeeded his two masters of the Julian Academy, William Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury, who already held this position. He chairs the jury of Miss France 1931, 1932, 1933 and 1934, 1935 as well as Miss Europe 1931. Paul Chabas died on May 10, 1937 in Paris, in his mansion at 23, boulevard Berthier. His funeral eulogy was pronounced by Henri Le Sidaner, who took over as president of the Institut de France.
