Alexandre Jacques Chantron (1842-1918): Female Nude

The same French seller has also listed this nice female nude attributed to Alexandre Jacques Chantron (1842-1918). Chantron was a pupil of Picot, T. Robert-Fleury and Bouguereau. He entered his works in the Paris Salon of 1877 with a religious subject, gained an honorable Mention in 1893, exhibited Fleurs de primemps at the Salon in 1895. He was awarded a third class medal in 1899, and a second class medal in 1902. He primarily painted history paintings, portraits, still lives (flowers) and later on female nudes in the manner of the great master Bouguereau.

Melina Eudoxie Daviau (1874-1961): Additional Academic Nudes

The Parisian Seller has listed some additional academic nudes by Daviau and I thought I would post them for you. Enjoy.
