Gaston Gérard (1849 - 1929)


“Nues de Dos”

Two “eau forte” studies of classic standing female nudes by this forgotten French painter and etcher. They were found together and obviously managed to stay a pair for a century in someones care in France…something that does not leave the passionate collector unmoved. They stylishly remind of similar works by Henri Fantin Latour (1836-1904). Gaston Gérard today is an obscured French artist who’s new and interesting short biography was created following the acquisition and can be found in the book accompanying the collection. 


Some of Gaston Gérard’shis other works. Fantin Latour is also represented in this collection (click picture).
