Portrait of Auguste Toulmouche – Jean-Louis Hamon

Infogalactic:

Auguste Toulmouche (September 21, 1829 – October 16, 1890) was a French painter who painted in the academic realism style. This trend in art was towards realism but also towards greater idealism, which is contrary to realism. The figures depicted were made more abstract and idealized. His themes were in the Regency revival style of genre painting. This would involve both generalizing the forms seen in nature, and subordinating them to the unity and theme of the artwork.

He studied with Charles Gleyre and is known mainly for his portraits of Parisian women; Émile Zola spoke of “Toulmouche’s delicious dolls.”[1] He was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour.

Pretty Ladies all in a row. Paris in the latter part of the 19th century was obviously a lovely place to be!
