FERNAND CORMON (French / 1845-1924)

Fernand Cormon was born in Paris; his real name was Ferdinand-Anne Piestre. Cormon studied under Cabanel, Fromentin, and Portaëls. He became a leading painter of historical subjects (such as his “Cain Flying Before Jehovah’s Curse” in the Musée d’Orsay), producing just the kind of large-scale academic canvases that the Salon loved and the Impressionists loathed. Fernand Cormon’s own atelier at the Beaux-Arts was regarded as conservative and academic. His pupils included Gustave Assire, Jacques Villon, Roger Chastel, Pierre-Eugène Clairin, and Omer Bouchery.
