Artwork Biography

View full artist profile

A student of Gérôme and Cabanel at the École des Beaux-Arts,Gabriel Deneux took part in the Paris Salon from 1880 onwards, obtaining an honourable mention in 1897.

He travelled through Greece and Sicily researching ancient pictorial techniques, such as those using egg and wax. It was a technique involving pigments mixed with wax, known as Encaustic Painting, that he employed for the Tlemcen murals and the decorations in the Palais d'Hiver in Algiers. His painting focused increasingly on the blending of shades rather than on precision of line. In 1890 he published Painting In Fast Colours. His most notable works are A Girl's Burial, The Pardon at Notre-Dame de la Clarté, an encaustic painting, The Return from Mont St-Michel, and Portrait of Madame Nina Pack.
