Biography   Jean Laurens


JEAN-PAUL LAURENS

Laurens was a major Salon painter of French historical scenes and one of the Parisian art teachers who attracted two American students to his private studio, according to Weinberg (1991, p. 156): Frederic Porter Vinton, and Charles Yardley Turner (1850-1919).  At least sixty more, however, would have benefitted from his instruction at the Académie Julian, where he could be found beginning in 1884.  In fact, Laurens was the most sought after French teacher among Americans.  Alphaeus Cole (1976, p. 114)  stated that Laurens stressed the study of anatomy: "He considered it a most important asset to an artist's knowledge, especially when drawing figures in action from imagination."
