Georges Jeannin was a Parisian still life and flower painter. Having studied under Vincelet, he began exhibiting at the Paris Salon from 1875. Jeannin, in collaboration with Cesbron, decorated the Paris Hotêl de Ville’s Salon de Passage. Many of Jeannin’s flower paintings were purchased by the State and he was awarded many prizes of excellence throughout his career.
An absolutely breath taking still life with flowers, Mandolin, and music sheets. Jeannin was a French artist who was a true master of his time. This painting exudes an almost realistic expression, but we do still very much feel an impressionistic technique. Signed bottom right corner, with the original plaque in a gold guild frame.
