Jacques-Emile Blanche (1861-1942), Painter
Artist associated with 8 portraits
Parisian-born Blanche received some instruction in painting from Henri Gervex, but was largely self-taught. He was closely connected to Manet and Degas and from the early 1880s was a frequent visitor to London, where he worked with Whistler and Sickert. From 1887 on, he sometimes exhibited his work with the New English Art Club. Blanche's many portraits are evidence not only of his talent but also of the range of his social connections.
