Cupid, A Very Fine Painted Enamel Plaque by Paul Victor Grandhomme, circa 1889


Cupid, an painted enamel copper plaque, gilded and carved wood Frame by Paul Grandhomme circa 1889. Signed Grandhomme lower left Plaque: 5.5 x 9.5 cm Frame: 28 x 34 cm Paul Grandhomme was trained as an apprentice jeweller when the war with Prussia (1871) and consequent lack of work forced him to accept a position in a library. It is there that he read Claudius Popelin's history of enamelling and then learned painting from Puvis de Chavannes. After teaching Alfred Garnier (1853-1910) , Paul Grandhomme (1851-1944 sold his workshop, kiln and tools in 1877.That year, however, their friend and patron, the architect Edouard Corroyer (1835-1904) , commissioned an enamel plaque entitled Musique from them. Grandhomme and Garnier then started working together on enamel pieces which brought them success so they could exhibit at the Universal Exhibition of 1889. Two enamel plaques are in the Metropolitan Museum of New York, they both were the last two enamel painters to collaborate with Gustave Moreau.
