Paul Emile Chabas was born in Nantes in 1869 and died in Paris 1937. He was a student of Bouuereau and Robert Fleury, and was highly talented, painting this picture when only 17. He first exhibited at the Salon in 1890. Chabas won the Prix National at the 1899 Paris Salon with his Joyeux Ébats. He was awarded a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1900 and in 1912 received the Médaille d’honneur. His preferred subject was a nude young woman in a natural setting. He was considered to be one of Europe’s greatest painters of nudes. He is listed in Benezit, Dictionaire des Peintres and Sculptures and Christies sold a similar nude by Chabas in 1994 (23 years ago) for approximately £5000.
