About

Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. This work is likely an illustration for Charles Perrault's Fairy Tales which was published in 1921. Georges Picard, the youngest son of Louis Picard, studied in Paris with Gérôme at the École des Beaux-Arts. He exhibited regularly at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, and was its treasurer for many years. While working as a painter he also illustrated Perrault's Sigurd and Tales. He received several important commissions, including work on the casino in Monte Carlo, the French embassy in Vienna, the foyer of the Lille theatre, the Petit Palais, and the Hôtel de Ville in Paris, where he decorated the Galerie Lobau linking the two entrance halls with allegory of human progress between 1892 and 1898. His easel paintings often depicted childhood scenes and nudes in a manner reminiscent of the light style of the 18th century. Museum and Gallery Holdings: St Louis (AM): two paintings
