A lovely piece entitled, “Seated Male Nude,” 1873 by Jean-Baptiste Édouard Detaille (1848-1912). Also known in academic art historian circles, as a “Portrait of Pierre.” Jean-Baptiste Édouard Detaille, was an accomplished and popular, French academic painter and military artist noted for his hyperrealism and masculine detail. Almost like a photograph.

Was born in Paris, in the section of the city known as Picardy. He is considered the “semi-official painter of the French military” of his day. His family had a long military tradition, and his grandfather was an arms dealer with numerous government contracts with Napoleon to supply military goods and uniforms.

ABOUT THE MODEL:

Not much is known about “Pierre.” All that is known is he worked in an inventory house outside of Paris and loaded up supplies to be shipped to French troops. We’ll do more research and report back what our staff finds out from our magazine approved art historians.
