Albert Aublet (1851 - 1938)
||Jacquand and Gerome; protege of Claude Monet
One of the most successful graduates of the studios of Jacquand and J.L. Gerome, Albert Aublet, is a Parisian by birth. He received his first Salon medal in 1880, and won steadily increasing popularity, chiefly by pictures of a graceful decorative character, remarkable for beauty of form and tender purity of color, of which "Sleep" is an admirable example.
In the hands of Albert Aublet "The New Moon" becomes a graceful female figure,
which forms a crescent in a sky fleeced with clouds, that wreathe in vapors above the pale peaks of the
legendary Mountains of the Moon.
Albert Aublet is a Parisian, a pupil of Jacquand and of Gerome, and made the regular course of a student at the
School of Fine Arts. A visit to Constantinople next added subjects of Oriental life to his repertory, and led
to the completion, among others, of his "Turkish Woman at the Bath," whose appearance at the Salon in 1883
was received with great applause and materially added to his fame and prosperity.
