Artwork Biography

View full artist profile

Gaston de Latouche was advised first by Manet and then by his friend Félix Bracquemond. He died having just reached an exceptional position in the art world. His landscapes, which were painted with great panache, also had the grace of the 18th century and the taste of the Modern Style. In 1917 an edition of Henri Régnier's Poèmes was published with illustrations from Latouche's compositions.

 

In 1890 the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, a breakaway group from the official Salon, was inaugurated at the Palais de l'Industrie under the aegis of Messonier and Purvis de Chavannes. At that time Latouche was one of the most prominent artists of the classical tradition in this breakaway group. A member of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts after 1890 and a member of the Société des Artistes Français from 1883, Latouche won a third-place medal in 1884 and a second-place medal in 1888. He won a bronze medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1889 and a gold medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle. He was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur in 1900 and Officier in 1909.
