Emile Vernon (French, 1872 - 1919)

Emile Vernon was a figurative French painter born in Blois, France in 1872 Little is known about his life except he was a pupil of Bouge and Truphème and studied painting under the French genre artist Auguste Joseph Trupheme (1836-1898). Vernon captured with his palette the fleeting transient, pale qualities of the female face and placed them against the silks and fine fabrics or natural settings in which he preferred to array his sitters. The artist excels rather as an academic than as a powerful painter. It would appear that the build up of his canvases never caused him the slightest trouble. He was also a talented flower painter vernon died at a young age in 1919
