✿ Delphin ENJOLRAS (1857-1945) ~ Sweet Dream









































Delphin Enjolras (1857 Coucouron –1945 Toulouse) was a French academic painter. Enjolras painted portraits, nudes, interiors, and used mostly watercolours, oil and pastels. He is best known for his intimate portraits of young women performing mundane activities such as reading or sewing, often illuminated by lamplight or black lighting. Perhaps his most famous work is the "Young Woman Reading by a Window".  He would become an excellent painter of nudes, and many of his later works, such as "La Sieste" are of an sensual nature.
From 1890 and onwards, Enjolras exhibited his works at the Paris Salon, joining the Société des Artistes Français in 1901. Also, the Musée du Puy and Musée d'Avignon both have collections of his works.
