Óleo sobre cartón - Firmado a mano - 1926

Origin: from the artist's family.
Sold with certificate of authenticity of Mr. Thierry Tuffier, specialist in the work of Julien FERON.

Julien Féron was born in 1864 in Saint-Jean du Cardonnay, Seine-Maritime. From a middle-class family, he studied engineering and, at the age of 23, married a 16-year-old girl whose parents were Alsatian refugees. As is the tradition in wealthy families, the father established his son in business. He bought him a business in Le Houlme. Julien Féron, who had no interest in business, paradoxically became the largest alcohol distributor in the entire Cailly Valley, operating over a 150 km radius, making the best of a bad situation that proved very profitable for him. In 1898, at the age of 34, the day after the birth of his sixth child, Julien Féron began painting as a self-taught artist with an absolutely overwhelming desire to capture colours, a dominant feature of Julien Féron's work. He began going out into the countryside alone with his easel, brushes and palette. Around 1902-1903, he took the plunge. At his property in Le Houlme, he had a very spacious studio built, collecting everything related to painting. He spent his time coming and going to Paris and Rouen for exhibitions. By chance, during one of his trips to Paris, he had the chance to meet the actor Dorival, member of the Frenchmen’s society and a great collector. Curious by nature, Dorival came to Le Houlme. Struck by Féron's painting, he told Armand Guillaumin about it. Through him, the two men met in 1904. It was the beginning of a great friendship, mixed with respect, and for Féron a new awareness, a new development. The meeting with Guillaumin was seminal to the painter's career.
