Mid-century, Paris School, 'Gladioli' Adrienne D'Houart
Joyful painting of paprika red, white and pale pink gladioli in a white pottery vase by Luxembourg artist Adrienne Baudouin D'Huart (1892 1992), daughter of the painter Ferdinand D'Huart, also known by his nickname Fenny. Fenny studied at the art academies of Munich and Paris and was a student of the French painter Alexandre Cabanel. He worked for a while in the Collège des Oratoriens school in Juilly-sur-Seine, but later on he returned to Luxembourg.
Adrienne studied at the Académie Julian, a private art school for painting and sculpture founded in Paris, France, in 1867 by French painter and teacher Rodolphe Julian (1839–1907) which was active from 1868 through 1968. It remained famous for the number and quality of artists who attended during the great period of effervescence in the arts in the early twentieth century.
