A 19th-century oil painting on wood panel from the atelier of the Normandy painter Emile Tremblay (1855-1935). The piece is monogrammed in the lower left corner and features the atelier's stamp on the reverse. The nickname "Loulou" appears on the back. 

A stunningly romantic oil painting, that looks carved in pastels. The nude figure lies in repose in the grasses, her hands outstretched over her arms. The blurred effect of the brushstrokes make the figure anonymous, and non-explicit. The nymph-like figure is illuminated against the lush backdrop.

Emile Tremblay is an artist with no available biography online. However, through extensive research of old archives and letters, we have uncovered some context about his closest associates. Emile had a brother, Louis Tremblay, who was a published poet, author, and painter. Emile was also a dear friend of the famous Swedish artist, art critic, and museum manager Richard Bergh (1858-1919), to whom he inscribed a painting with the dedication, "To my brother Bergh." The remainder of what we know about Emile Tremblay comes solely from his exquisite atelier works.
