Catalogue Note

Student to Lehmann and fellow student to Aman-Jean, Osbert progressively evolves from his naturalistic education and inspires himself with pointillism, Puvis de Chavannes, and other symbolist painters, creating his own poetic style. Having become one of the major figures of Symbolism, the State commissions several works at the beginning of the 20th Century.
