Two Childen by James Le Jeune, Irish, 1910- 1983
James Le Jeune, RHA (1910 - 1983). Oil on canvas. Portrait of a brother and sister, seated, the girl holding a doll. Signed to obverse. Rectangular, 81 cms. X 62 cms. (32 inches X 24.4 Inches). Very charming portrait by this "painters painter" in original condition. James George Le Jeune was born in Canada in 1910 but grew up in Brittany and England. He served in Italy and Africa during WWII, and worked as an architect in London before moving to Ireland in 1950 to take up painting full time. Le Jeune was a member of the Royal Irish Academy, the Arts Club, and the RDS and was elected as an associate member of the RHA in 1963. While he worked in landscape, he is best know as a portrait painter. Often called a "painters painter", his work often sells at auction for 5 figures. Le Jeune's work is represented in the Crawford Municipal Gallery, Cork; the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin; and the National Self Portrait Collection, University of Limerick. Le Jeune died in 1983.
