Paul de Longpré (1855-1911),
a French flower painter, worked mainly in the United States. He was
born in Lyons, France, and was entirely self-taught. From his twelfth
year he practiced successfully in Paris as a painter of fans. At 21 he
first exhibited at the Salon. Having lost his money by the failure of a
Paris bank, he moved in 1890 to New York and in 1896 held an exhibition
of flower pieces which secured him instant recognition. In 1899 he moved
to California and two years later built a beautiful house at Hollywood,
which became celebrated for its magnificent flower gardens. De Longpré
painted only perfect specimens of flowers; with delicacy of touch and
with feeling for color he united scientific knowledge, and he also knew
how to give expression to the subtle essence of the flowers. The finest
of his paintings include "Double Peach Blossoms" and "White Fringed
Poppies" (1902) - both widely known through popular reproductions.
