Barbizon painting of Nude Fausto Giusto Nom de guerre for Eugene Galien-Laloue

1890

About

Fontainebleau forest and Nude in Spring. Oil on canvas signed F. Giusto. Image size: 22.75"H x 14.5"W. Fausto Giusto, a pseudonym for the painter Eugene Galien-Laloue (Naples, 1867 - Zurich, 1941), was an Italian painter with an international career. A large body of work signed by him was painted during the years of 1890-1910, much of this portraying international scenes with vivid color. He painted cityscapes in Bern, St. Moritz, Naples, Ostend, Paris and elsewhere, as well as genre scenes, usually gallant scenes set in the 18th century for wealthy aristocrats. His city-scapes lean towards the style of Eugene Galien-Laloue (1854-1941). Many of his paintings were turned into etchings. Painting major cities, scenes and locations throughout Europe, Giusto also executed several outstanding works capturing life on the sea. Much of his work was later produced as etched prints, many of these original paintings are held in private collections and museums around the world. In cataloging a work offered at auction, Sotheby's noted "F. Giusto" as being an identified pseudonym for Eugene Galien-Laloue. Galien-Laloue's work underwent extensive research by Noe Willer, who published a book documenting many of his pseudonym's and noted in the auction record that Fausto is one of the pseudonyms for Eugene Galien-Laloue. His work has been something of a mystery though, with a wealth of incredible art in his name but with a very slim biography to accompany it - in recent years, however, connections have been made between signed works of Giusto and the distinct likeness to the style of Eugene Galien-Laloue. Galien-Laloue's work underwent extensive research by Noe Willer, who published a book documenting many of his pseudonym's and works. Numerous examples have sold at auction with the Eugene Galien-Laloue studio stamp on verso and Fausto Giusto signature on the front.
