OIL PAINTING:  Cupid's Folly

      During the end of the 19th century, Seignac was living in Paris at rue de Fleurus, 26 (moving to Boulevard du Montparnasse, 84 in 1902) and studied with Tony Robert-Fleury, Gabriel Ferrier and William A. Bouguereau; the latter, being one of the driving forces in the Salon at this time, was to have the greatest influence on him. This is most evident in both Seignacs style and choice of subject matter with its crisp, clear technique and classical imagery - Cupid's Folly, La Nymphe De Foret [The Forest Nymph], The Muse.
