Object description :

"Jules Blin (born In 1851) - Female Nude - A Bather - Oil On Canvas - Ca. 1880"
Rare work by Jules Blin depicting a naked woman from behind in a landscape of undergrowth. She would appear to be a bather by her clothing and the presence of water at the bottom left. She is slightly turned towards the viewer in a very modest position, her left arm whose hand caresses the tip of her braid hides her breast. We can guess a look out of the corner of the eye that also seems to be in the direction of the viewer. Interesting composition with a lot of realism in the representation of the female body. Oil on canvas signed lower right: "J. Blin".

Dimensions: 46 x 34 cm

Condition report: good general condition, there is a restoration to the right of the head. Presence of natural cracks. The canvas is varnished.

Jules Blin was born in Quevaucamps in Belgium in 1951 and seems to have died in Paris at the end of the 19th century. “The life and work of Jules Blin are very poorly documented. We only know that he was undoubtedly the pupil of the Belgian painter Nicaise de Keyser (1813-1887) and that he debuted at the Salon in 1878 with a work entitled “Délaissée” (Barthélémy, 2009) ”. he exhibited at the Palais des Champs-Elysées in May 1880 a work entitled “Baigneuse endormie.” Jules Blin is famous for his oil entitled “Art, misery, despair, folie!” which is present in the collections of the Musée des Beaux -Arts of Dijon and whose “Art of Art” Show (by Taddei Frédéric and Taddei Marie-Isabelle) devoted an episode in 2016.
