Artists Biography

Charles Joseph Frédéric Soulacroix

French born 1825
Soulacroix was a pupil of Ramney, Cornelius and of Dumont. He entered the School of Fine Arts on 22 September 1845 at the age of twenty and made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1849.Soulacroix’s subjects were taken from the French middle classes. He almost certainly created a special type of soubrette. Soulacroix along with Reggianini and Ricci dwelt lovingly on the richness of texture in the ladies dresses and in the upholstery and draperies.The eloquence of Soulacroix’s pictures results from his dexterity in the rendering of these beautiful interior scenes. His figures enjoy equal status with each part of the painting, measure for measure in treatment and without favouritism.A work titled “Un Jeu d'Esprit” can be found in the National Gallery in Philadelphia.
