Joseph Frédéric Charles Soulacroix (1825-1900) was born in Montpellier, France in 1825, and studied under the artists Ramy, Cornelius and Dumont. In 1845 he entered the École des Beaux Arts, and began showing his works at the Paris Salon in 1849. Soulacroix painted a number of history paintings on a chivalric theme, his eighteenth century-clad figures indulging in romantic pursuits under such headings as ‘The Serenade’ and ‘Adieu’. However, he seems to have specialised mainly in portraying, the activities of the wealthier among his contemporaries. He was brilliant in reproducing the textures of silk and satin on the canvas, and used this ability in his depictions of lavish interiors and elegantly dressed figures. His paintings record superbly the lives of the more affluent French families, playing hide and seek, flirting, courting, playing with their pets or making their debut at a ball. He also painted the occasional classical piece, portraying the female nude in elegant poses, for example reclining on a chaise longue in the painting entitiled ‘The Feather Fan’. The National Gallery of Philadelphia owns ‘Un Jeu d’Esprit’, and a painting entitled ‘The Embrace’ is in the Lord Mayor’ s collection at the Mansion House in London.
