About

Signed in plate lower right. Delicately, hand-colored etching of the original oil on canvas drawn from Victor Hugo’s poem ‘Fragments of a Serpent’, where the poet lusts for ‘the lovely doe-like eyes of Albaydé’. Born in Montpellier, France, Cabanel was a popular painter who personified official academic art at the top of the Salon hierarchy and, with his contemporary Bouguereau, stood as the antithesis of progressive movements, including impressionism. Alexandre entered drawing school as a boy and continued at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1840 under Picot. Soon after his debut at the Salon, he won the Second Prix de Rome (1845) with Christ in the Praetorium. After affirming his place in the official art community of Paris, Cabanel was appointed to a professorship in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, formerly an arm of the Institut. He painted history, genre, and religious subjects, all of which were executed with the meticulous finish typical of the prevailing Salon masters.
