Georges-Marie-Julien Girardot (French, 1856-1914)

French painter Georges Marie Julien Girardot (1856-1914) was trained by the artist Albert Maignan in Paris. He was a member of the Society of French painters from 1883 and principally showed genre scenes at the Salon. He was awarded** several medals for his works.

These pictures reflect the artist's interest in mythology. The artist has painstakingly surrounded the nymphs by detailed foliage to evoke a timeless atmosphere. | © CHRISTIE'S
