"Pair Of Portraits Of Woman - Charles Pecrus (1826 - 1907)"Pair of portraits of women, signed Charles Pécrus Painter of genre, portraits, animals, landscapes, seascapes. Student of Fichet and Javet. He appeared at the Paris Salon, with genre subjects, from 1857 to 1905. He had collaborated with N. Diaz at Barbizon then became the friend of Eugène Boudin, also knowing Jongkind and Alfred Stevens. We must not fail to distinguish in his work two very separate ways. First of all painter of interior scene and genre in the Louis XIII style (his painting "Lendemain des noces was bought at the Salon of 1865 by the Emperor Napoleon III) and although having given some remarkable portraits, we prefer generally the painter of landscapes, seascapes and animals that he then became, certainly under the influence of Jongkind and especially E. Boudin, who held him in esteem and possessed his works, which will be bequeathed to the Honfleur Museum.
