Antique oil painting from France: French School of the XIXth Oil on canvas signed on the back by Victor Pierre Ménard (1857-1938).

The canvas has no abundance of material, but is rather smooth with consistent, balanced brush strokes. The scene represents a Turkish soldier on a stool. The light is powerful and very well nuanced against the turquoise blue outfit.

About the artist: Victor Pierre Ménard (1857-1938) was born in Nantes in 1857. He trained at the Beaux-Arts in Paris with renowned professors such as Luc-Olivier Merson (1846-1920), Jules Joseph Lefebvre (1834-1912) and Henri-Lucien Doucet (1856-1895). He lived in Paris in the second district where he met and married Charlotte Morel, one of the first women to be admitted to mixed classes of the Beaux-Arts.

Victor Pierre Ménard regularly exhibited his Breton landscapes, portraits and genre scenes at the Salon of French artists from 1894, where he obtained a mention in 1923. He also exhibited at the Salon d'Hiver between 1923 and 1937. He died in Paris in 1938.
