Adrien Henri Tanoux 1865-1923

Fleur du Mal

"Fleur du Mal"- 1913

"In subsequent years, Tanoux returns to nudes such as: "Après le Bain" 1912, " Fleur du Mal " 1913 or "Parfums troublants" in 1914. "Noted for his nude paintings of sensual and voluptuous women, he practices a figurative style, tender and Mannerist. Often his models are placed in a well-toned atmosphere where he plays light and shade with skill."

Unfortunately this very small photograph of the painting is all I can find for the moment, probably it can be found in some old auction catalogue, if anyone has a better copy of this please share it with us.

David Jones has just sent us this great photo of this Tanoux painting, that is surely one of his best, and is now found in Yusopov Palace, St. Petersburg.
