1) Delphin Enjolras, born in Coucouron, Ardeche, on 1857 to 1945 (age 88), was a French academic painter. He painted portraits, nudes, interiors, and used mostly watercolours, oil, and pastels.

2) He's best known for his intimate portraits of young women performing mundane activities such as reading or sewing, often illuminated by lamplight. Most famous work: "Young Woman Reading by a Window."

3) Enjolras studied under watercolorist Gaston Gerard at the "Ecole de Dessin de la Ville de Paris", as well as Jean-Leon Gerome at the Beaux-Arts, and Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret.

4) Enjolras painted mainly landscapes in his early career; later it became evident that his love was for painting women. He changed genres, mainly on portraits of young women by lamp or black lighting.

5) He would become an excellent painter of nudes, and many of his later works, such as "La Sieste" are of an erotic and sensual nature.

6) From 1890 & onwards, Enjolras exhibited his works at the Paris Salon, joining the Societe des Artistes Francais in 1901. Also, the Musee du Puy and Musee d'Avignon both have collections of his works.
