Oil on panel, 11 x 16 inches, cradle backing, signed lower right, in an ornate period gilt frame. A very well regarded artist of the French Realism movement, Emile Lambinet was born in Versailles and studied with Horace Vernet and John Baptiste Camille Corot. Both of these artists greatly influenced Lambinet's mature style of painting, as can be seen in this image, with the exacting details and bright atmosphere of Vernet and the subtle color palette with just a few accents of saturated color of Corot. Lambinet showed his work regularly at the Paris Salon, winning medals in 1843, 1853 and 1857, and in 1867 was made a Chevalier of the Legion de'Honnuer. Today Lambinet's paintings can be found in many museums worldwide, with the largest collection of his work at the Musee Lambinet in the artist's hometown of Versailles. (Price reduced)
