Catalogue Note

Émile Munier's early artistic training was intended to prepare him for work as an upholsterer, following in the footsteps of his father who designed for Les Gobelins, the tapestry markers in Paris.  Yet, by 1869, Munier regularly exhibited at the Paris Salon and in 1872 entered William Bouguereau's studio where he soon gained a reputation as one of his most talented students.
