Breton by the sea
Oil on parquet panel
François Nicolas Augustin FEYEN-PERRIN (1826-1888)
Painter of history, religious subjects, genre scenes, portrait painter, he was for years one of the favorite painters of the general public. His paintings were a sensation at the Salons.
He entered the School of Fine Arts in Paris in 1848, where he was a pupil of Léon Cogniet and Adolphe Yvon.
He appeared at the Paris Salon from 1848 to 1882, being medalist in 1865 and 1867. Crazy about Brittany, like his brother, also a painter, he settled in Cancale, where scenes of everyday life fed his inspiration.
Certainly some of his paintings, like this one seem far removed from the reality of local folklore. The artist, neither Symbolist nor Impressionist, places it in a characteristic style that testifies to the taste of the bourgeoisie of a specific period.
His painting is polished and sensual, like his female models. His works are present in many French museums.
