Alexis Vollon (French, 1865-1945)
Also known as: Vollon, AntoineBiography:
Son of the realist artist Antoine Vollard, painter-etcher Alexis Vollon combined traditional academic subjects with Impressionist technique. His resume attests to his positive reception by the French academic community: beginning in 1885, he exhibited regularly at the Salon, where he achieved the hors concours designation (allowing him to show his work without submitting it to the jury), later serving on the Salon's panel of judges; he won numerous awards, including a second-class medal at the 1889 Salon and a silver medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle; and he was made Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur in 1900. Vollon's subjects comprise four major categories: Impressionistic landscapes of the Seine, featuring famous landmarks such as the Louvre or Notre Dame Cathedral; still lifes of rustic pots and vessels, in the style of Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin; Dutch School-inspired, quaint domestic scenes with Breton mothers and children; and genre paintings and portraits of upper-class ladies or children in interiors.
