SAFA/5586 Although there does not seem to be any ready biographical information on R. Bonnechose, it is apparent that he studied in at least one of the Paris ateliers of the late 19th century. Witness his use of the subject of classical maidens, such as Gérôme may have used, but in a more impressionist painterly tradition like Carolus-Duran.
