Adolphe La Lyre (1850-1935)
[Adolphe LaLyre, Adolphe Lalire]
The old Greek legend of the Sirens has attracted many artists, and resulted in the creation of
many admirable pictures, from races not dreamed of when Ulysses sailed upon his voyage
in quest of the golden fleece. In the composition of Adolphe La Lyre, who is an esteemed artist of the
modern school in Paris, to which city he belongs,
the tradition finds a quite original and individual interpretation.
La Lyre, a painter educated in the Bouguereau
class at the Paris Art Academy, somewhat follows his master in correct drawing and pure color, but has quite
an individual style.
