Paul Seignac long held a leading position as a
painter of genre, especially children, in the schools of his native
country. Born in Bordeaux, he went to Paris for this artistic
education. There he studied under Theodore Duverger and at the
Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Francois Picot.
Seignac made his
debut at the Paris Salon of 1849, where, in 1889, he received an
Honorable Mention. In London his works were shown by the Belgian
dealer Ernest Gambar (showing 500 of 2897 characters).
