"Octave Denis Victor Guillonnet,portrait Of A Native Non-commissioned Officer In Southern Algeria, C. 1902"
Very beautiful portrait of an indigenous non-commissioned officer or spahi wearing guennour in southern Algeria by Octave Denis Victor Guillonnet.
Very beautiful sketch of impressionist workmanship, oil on wooden panel in tondo format (round) of 160 x 155 mm in very good condition.
This painting is very clean and not framed.

Signature of the monogram in the lower left side of the work. According to what we know of the artist's stay in Algeria, this painting must have been made between October and December 1902 during his journey in Tassili.

Octave Denis Victor Guillonnet was a French impressionist and orientalist painter born on September 21, 1872 and died in 1967.
Coming from a wealthy family, Guillonnet spent his childhood in Jargeau, in the Loiret, then, after his marriage to Eugénie Guyon, a summer residence in Carros, north of Nice on the Côte d'Azur and the rest of the year in Garches near Paris.

Considered a precocious child, he entered at thirteen as an apprentice in the studio of the painter Lionel Royer and at 15 he obtained his first medal at the Paris Salon. At 21, he was admitted out of the competition and exhibited his works there.

In 1901, he was awarded the National Travelers' Grant which allowed him to stay for a year in Algeria on a study trip. He then applied the new concepts he developed by studying the bright light and colors of North Africa to the production of ethereal portraits.

A number of his paintings can be seen at the Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris and in provincial museums.
He also received public commissions: the 46 panels for the Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Caracas, a series of "Stations of the Cross" in Philadelphia, as well as important work for the City Hall of Paris.
