Portrait of a Gentleman

c.1908

About

A wonderful portrait oil on canvas by popular French artist Maximilien Luce. A simply brilliant and superlative piece, truly remarkable. Signed lower right. Maximilien Luce was a French Neo-Impressionist artist, known for his paintings, illustrations, and engravings. As a painter, Luce was initially influenced by Impressionism, and was later inspired by the Divisionist style of Georges Seurat. He would go on to adopt a Pointillist approach to painting, as evidenced in his 1895 work On the Bank of the Seine at Poissy. Luce’s alignment with the Neo-Impressionists extended to their political philosophy of anarchism, with many of his illustrations appearing in socialist periodicals. Although he was best known for depicting landscapes, Luce also frequently took up political topics as his subject matter, identifying and empathizing with the proletariat. Born March 13, 1858 in Paris, France, he became an apprentice to the wood engraver Henri-Théophile Hildebrand at the age of 14. At the end of his life, Luce became less politically active and withdrew from anarchist activism, and his style returned to the Impressionistic mode in which he had first painted. He died February 7, 1941 in Paris, France.
