About

Delphin Enjolras 1857-1945 French Nu Allongé (Lying Nude) Signed, inscribed and dated “Paris 11 novembre 1918 11h. matin/DEnjolras” (lower center) Pastel on paper This entrancing painting by the Academic painter Delphin Enjolras is among the French artist’s celebrated series of female nudes. The artist specialized in paintings that paid homage to the female form, excelling in portraits and nudes depicting young women in airy, domestic scenes. The present work, entitled Nu Allongé, is imbued with the exquisite luminosity for which Enjolras is celebrated. He places his model against a background of luxurious, richly patterned fabrics rendered in lush pastel hues, while his signature airy composition lends a dream-like softness to her voluptuous form. Born in 1857, Enjolras began his studies at the École de Dessin de la Ville de Paris, focusing primarily on watercolors. He soon moved on to study at the École des Beaux-Arts, learning from masters including the Academic great Jean-Léon Gérôme. Landscapes were his primary focus in his early career, though it became clear that painting women was where his true talent shown the brightest. He became a celebrated painter of nudes, and his later work became imbued with a stunning sensuality, as seen in the present pastel. Beginning in 1890, he frequently exhibited at the Paris Salon, and he joined the Société des Artistes Français in 1901. His works are highly exhibited throughout France, including significant collections of his work at the Musée du Puy and the Musée d’Avignon.
