Charles Clément Francais Perron was born in Plessé, in the Loire-Atlantique.

He commenced his art studies in Nantes, before moving to Paris and joining the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts. His highly developed technical skills became his trademark, evident initially among his anatomical plates, used for teaching medical students. He continued to paint nudes and still life, the latter which he is probably best known for, combining his faultless technique with a soft muted palette. Whether his subject matter is the cottages of Brittany, a delicate still life or the nude female form, each of his paintings shows his complete mastery of shape and hue. Created from pure lines, his works draw to mind a Picasso drawing, while compositionally they bear similarities to Chardin.

Perron exhibited widely and gained several awards, including gold at the 1928 Salon and silver at the 1937 Exposition Universelle in Paris.

Over the last 60 years Gladwell & Patterson have been quietly championing the French artist Charles Perron and have been privileged to know the Perron family well, and we continue to visit his delightful daughter, Madame Perron. His studio was an ethereal and joyful place full of light and beauty, which he so skillfully managed to translate onto his canvases.

Perron’s studio was an ethereal place full of light and beauty and one of his many strengths was that he managed to translate this wonderful light and the resultant shadows onto his canvases.
