William Albert Ablett

Biography from Myers Fine Art & Antiques Auction Gallery

Although born to English parents, William Ablett lived in Paris, France where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Aublet and Grome and exhibited at the Salons.  He was made a Chevalier of the Legion d'Honneur and also a member of the Royal Academy in London. 

In the 1920s, William Ablett put his classical training at the service of creating boudoir prints of fashionable Art Deco ladies, and it is for these images that he is best remembered today.  His interpretation of the modern French woman became the hallmark of the "Boudoir" style of art.  His vision of the Art Deco lady, combined with his technical excellence, resulted in an extremely desirable and popular oeuvre.  His reputation as one of the finest artists of this genre remains unchallenged to this day.
