Delphin Enjolras was a pupil of the watercolourist Gaston Gérard at the Écoles des Dessins de la Ville de Paris. From 1901, he exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français, of which he was a member. He was very prolific, especially in watercolours and pastels, and made a speciality of painting young women, often while dressing or at their daily tasks.
