About artist: Francois Gall, Hungarian by birth, became a naturalized French citizen in 1942. He is best known as an impressionist painter in the pure French tradition. He began his artistic studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and was awarded a scholarship in 1930 from the Hungarian government. Six years later: Francois Gall established himself in Paris and became a student of Devambez at the National Academy of Fine Arts. The artist greatly admired the first generation of Impressionists and adopted their concepts for his own interpretations. Parisian scenes and portrayals of women engaged in typically feminine activities were among his preferred subjects, but his repertoire also included landscapes and still-life composition that were the trademarks of his works. The artist participated in various Salon exhibitions in Paris and became a favorite with the public. In 1963, he was honored with the Francis Smith Prize. He died in 1987. Reference: E. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres Biography from Artworld International Francois Gall studied in Rome at the Accademia de Belle Arti while performing manual jobs. In 1930 he obtained a grant from the Hungarian government and settled in Paris in 1936 where he trained with Devambez at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux - Arts.
