Auguste-Clément Chrétien Art

1835-1913

Born in 1835, Auguste-Clémeint Chrétien was a pupil of the French Neoclassical master Jean-Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864) and later Louis Lamothe (1822-1869) at the École des Beaux-Arts. He made his debut at the Salon in 1857 and remained a regular participant until 1882, presenting mainly portraits and historical subjects. Among his most important commissions was the decoration of the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris.
