This work opens the doors on a fascinating world – that of a captivating individual who is now being rediscovered.

An eminent 19th century artist, the academician Jean Robie excelled mainly in still-life, landscape an orientalist painting. His many travels throughout Europe and the East made him a writer with sound descriptive skills.

This book presents a biography of the painter placed back in his own social context, along with an in-depth analysis of his works, enhanced by a technical approach. In addition to a detailed study of all his writings, readers will discover a catalogue containing over 229 works of art, classified by theme.

On the basis of archives kept by the Jean Robie Foundation, a new view of the life of a 19th century artist is depicted here. Jean Robie, a first illustrated monograph, will become a reference work for art lovers and collectors.
