Pierre Puvis de Chavannes
French, 1824–1889
Follow

Pierre Puvis de Chavannes was an accomplished and sought-after muralist in the 19th century; his major public commissions include pieces for the Panthéon, the Sorbonne, and the Hôtel de Ville in Paris. He created his murals using the marouflage technique, in which he first made a canvas painting and then affixed it directly to the wall. In conjunction with this technique, Puvis developed a style of simplified forms, flat surfaces, rhythmic lines, and atmospheric color; his works were widely admired by peer artists and writers, including Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, and Charles Baudelaire, and other Post-Impressionists and Symbolists. Puvis also produced smaller easel versions of his large public works.
