Landscape painting with bridge twice signed François Lafon (1846-1913) & E. Malbecy 15" x 18"

SKU: 14108

This oil on canvas dates from the early twentieth century. Curiously it has two signatures; François Lafon (1846-1913) and E. Malbecy (20 February 1943). Wear and losses to the frame - refer to photos. This may have been a homage from Malbecy to Lafon, considering Lafon died in 1913, and this is written on the painting.

Extract translated from Wikipedia:

François Lafon is the fourth child of the painter Jacques-Émile Lafon. He married Louise-Marguerite de Thoury at La Flèche on September 15, 1879 who notably gave him a son, Jean Lafon (1886-1973), also a painter.

A disciple of his father, François Lafon trained in the studio of Alexandre Cabanel. He began at the Paris Salon of 1875 and exhibited historical scenes, religious compositions, genre scenes and portraits. “His style is slender, graceful and often imbued with a dreamy nostalgia”. A member of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts from 1890, François Lafon received commissions from the French State. His works are kept in several French museums in Rouen, Saint-Brieuc and Périgueux.
