Louis Abel-Truchet (French, 1857-1918)
Oil-on-canvas, signed.

Louis Abel-Truchet was born in Versailles on December 29, 1857. He was the student of Jules Lefebvre and Benjamin Constant at the Julian Academy in Paris. Abel-Truchet specialized in painting scenes of history, genre, landscapes, and portraits. He mainly worked in oils, pastels, and also as an engraver. His landscapes were commonly of Paris, notably Monmartre; Venice; Padua; Sienna; Marseille; Monte Carlo; and Avignon. In 1891 he began to exhibit his works in various salons, notably the Salons d'Automne; the Salon des Artistes Français; and at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, where he became a member of the society in 1910. Two of his figurative paintings were included in an exhibition of artists who had died for their country, at the Salon d'Automne in 1919.
He is listed in Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres...
