Delphin Enjolras (1857-1945) ✿

Delphin Enjolras (1857 Coucouron –1945 Toulouse) was a French academic painter. Enjolras painted portraits, interiors, and used mostly watercolours, oil and pastels. He is best known for his portraits of young women that reading or sewing, often illuminated by lamplight.

He was born in Coucouron, Ardèche, son of Casimir Enjolras and Delphine Laurens. Enjolras studied under watercolorist Gaston Gérard at the "Ecole de Dessin de la Ville de Paris", as well as Jean-Léon Gérôme at the Beaux-Arts, and Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret.
Enjolras painted mainly landscapes in his early career; later it became evident that his love was for painting women.
From 1890 and onwards, Enjolras exhibited his works at the Paris Salon, joining the Société des Artistes Français in 1901. Also, the Musée du Puy and Musée d'Avignon both have collections of his works.
