Curatorial description (Accessed: 9 January 2018)
The Parisian photographer and publisher Bénard was known for his series of portraits of artists in their studios. In this strikingly modern-looking image, François Flameng (1856–1923), a painter and professor at the French Academy of Fine Arts, poses jauntily before an oversized blank canvas in his sky-lit studio.
