Biography  
Jules Alexandre Grun


Biography from Anderson Galleries, Inc.

Jules Grun, once a student of Jean Baptiste Guillemet's, was a French painter from the turn of the century.  Thanks to his talent, Grun not only participated in the Salon des Artistes Francais, but also served as a member of the Salon committee as well as a jury member for a museum.  In addition to being an accomplished painter, Grun also produced advertisement posters.  Some of his best-known work includes the poster for Monaco's "Exposition et Concours de Canots Automobiles" and a decorative signpost for the Paris Tavern.  His works can be seen in numerous locations including the Lisieux Museum in France.

This particular pastel was created for Mrs. Margaine-Lacroix as the white text on it indicates: "To Mrs. Margaine-Lacroix after one of her creations." Margaine-Lacroix was a well-recognized clothing designer from the Belle Epoque. This particular period was a time during which Paris was the center for arts, and a time of peace and financial stability allowing for the development of fashion in all social classes.
