This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Delphin Enjolras was born in 1857 at Courcouron in the Ardèche, France.  He received his formal artistic training from the celebrated teacher Gérard, painting in oils and pastels. Enjolras was highly successful, a regular exhibitor at the Sociétaire des Artistes Francais, to which he was elected a member in 1901.

Enjolras can be classed as a painter of beautiful ladies, a subject matter which was highly prized in the nineteenth Century. His subjects are often revealing intimate moments of society beauties. A golden glow illuminates the boudoir, enhancing her delicate flesh tones, an element for which Enjolras is admired.

Most of his work is hanging in the Musee du Puy and the Musee Calvet d’Avignon.

Biography from Anderson Galleries, Inc.:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Renowned as a portraitist of the upper echelons of society, Delphin Enroljas particularly favored depicting women in intimate settings alone or among friends, illuminated by a soft glow of light.  Enjolras frequently used light to create atmosphere, highlighting the figure’s exposed skin and diaphanous drapery.

Delphin Enjolras was born on May 13, 1857 in the historic town of Coucouron in the Ardèche.  His formal artistic training began in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under the esteemed Salon painter Jean-Léon Gérôme.  Enjolras also studied with Pascal Adolphe Jean Dagnan-Bouveret and Gustave Claude Etienne Courtois, and is recorded as having furthered his artistic education at the Ecole de Dessin in Paris under Gaston Gérard.

Having made his debut at the Société des Artistes Français in 1889, he was elected a member in 1901 and continued to show works with the Société up until 1909.

Best known for his dazzling studies of young women illuminated by lamp light or engaged in domestic activities, he also portrayed a number of Orientalist subjects, genre scenes and society portraits.  In addition Enjolras painted city views as well as beautiful landscapes.  The majority of his works exhibited at the Salon (from 1890) tended to focus contemporary bourgeois settings of which the present work is typical.

Biography from South Coast Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Delphin Enjolras was born in 1857 at Courcouron in the Ardeche.  He had a formal artistic training studying under the celebrated teacher Jean Leon Gerome at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and Dagnan-Bouveret.

Enjolras painted some landscapes, in particular those hanging in the Musee du Puy, and the Musee Calvet d' Avignon.  However the majority of Enjolras's oil paintings and pastels depict young ladies illuminated by lamplight.  His subjects are often engaged in simple domestic pursuits such as reading, sewing or flower arranging, although at times, he sought a more intimate portrayal.

Exhibitions include: Society of French Artists (Member 1901), Paris Salon (From 1890)
Museums: Musee du Puy, Musee d' Avignon
