Biography of Artist

Andre Louis Maxime HUMBERT

French 20th Century

He was born on 27th of November 1879 in Paris.

Humbert specialised in painting genre scenes (of all types) and historical subjects.

After studying under Leon Bonnat, he continued to flourish in the rich environment of Parisian artistic life and regularly exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais. In 1901 he was awarded a Medaille de Troisieme Classe, a Medaille de Dieuxieme Classe in 1904 and a travel scholarship in 1907.

Humbert’s painting La Lapidation de Saint Etienne is part of the permanent collection of the Musee Perigeux.

Humbert painted symbolist subjects typical of La Belle Epoque. His beautiful maidens standing pensively in the forest were subjects of immense popularity at the turn of the 20th century.
