Émile Munier

1840-1895 France/Academicism-Classicism

 

Brief Biography-Emile Munier was born in Paris in 1840. He entered the Gobelins Manufactory with his two brothers, where he learned to become an upholstery artist and took drawing and painting classes. His primary influence was William-Adolphe Bouguereau, with whom he became a close friend. Munier won Medals at the Beaux-Arts de Paris and exhibited at the Salon several times. His painting 'Trois Amis' is perhaps his most famous painting, which Pear's soap used as a logo for many years. American collectors, in particular, highly appreciated his works.
