Albert-Tibulle Furcy de Lavault biography
Albert-Tibulle Furcy de Lavault was born in Saint Genis (Charente-Maritime), France in 1847. He was a still life painter often including fruit and game in his arrangements but he is best known for his flower painting. Furcy de Lavault was exhibited widely in France, often at the Paris Salon and the Dijon Salon. He was also the curator at the Musée de la Rochelle from 1882 to 1913.

The middle classes in France and elsewhere were reaping the benefits of the industrial revolution and their appetite for flower paintings was ever increasing. This encouraged a wealth of artists to study still-life painting and Furcy de Lavault was no exception. Garden flowers were very fashionable in Paris and in this magnificent example by Furcy de Lavault we see a beautiful arrangement of roses. The artist leaves behind the more stilted style of the old school of Salon painters and creates a beautifully natural and free-flowing painting, full of life and colour. This was very much in keeping with the new realism developing in France during the second half of the century.
