ARTIST BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS

Aimé Morot

(1850–1913)

 Aimé Morot was born in Nancy,France. He studied under Alexandre Cabanel in the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

In 1873 he won the Prix de Rome. The subject given that year was the Babylonian Captivity. This prize-winning painting is currently in the collection of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

 He went on to win his first medal at the Salon, in1876. He won medals again in 1877 and 1879. In 1880 he received the medal of honor for his painting "The Good Samaritan," a powerful picture which the Government purchased for the Luxembourg Museum.

 “Le Charmeuse” was exhibited at Bordeaux in1885 where it received critical acclaim. The following was written about it:

"The Charmer by Aimé Morot is a most graceful fancy imaginable. We never tire of watching that pretty face
framed by the foliage of the frame, whose velvety eyes fascinate those who look at her.”

This fine example of the artists work is in its original gilded frame.
