Fortuney Louis: Louis Ernest Fortuné Andrieux is a French painter, fresco artist, engraver, lithographer and pastelist born in 1875. For reasons of homonymy with Louis Andrieux, he takes the pseudonym Fortuney. He is a friend of Rodin and paints with him in the south of France, in Cagnes-sur-mer. Fortuney is inspired by the sea, the Breton lights and those of the Mediterranean. He obtains the commission of the State for important paintings intended to decorate the Ministry of the Navy, but never, in spite of the rumour, was official painter of the Navy (cf the collection of the nominations of the POM). Fortuney painted many genre scenes depicting women in the streets of Pars, as well as marines. He is an expert in the use of pastel, very fashionable in the Belle Epoque, and excels at rendering the velvety softness of fabrics and skin tones.
Next to a very Parisian inspiration, he deploys in his marines and in his port scenes sketched on the spot an incisive vigor, which contrasts with the virtusity of his genre scenes. Charmantiques answers 7d/7 within 24hours. Thank you to pay within 7 days. We appreciate very much your patience.
