Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824-1898 ) was a French painter, who became the president and co-founder of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts and whose work influenced many other artists. His work is seen as symbolist in nature, even though he studied with some of the romanticists, and he is credited with influencing an entire generation of painters and sculptors. One of his proteges was Georges de Feure.   more from wikipedia »
