Delphin Enjolras was born in 1857 at Courcouron in the Ardeche. He had a formal artistic training studying under the celebrated teacher Gerome at the Beaux-Arts, and Dagnan-Bouveret.
He painted some fine landscapes, in particular those hanging in the Musee du Puy, and the Musee Calvet d' Avignon. However the majority of Enjolras's oil paintings and pastels depict young ladies illuminated by lamplight. His subjects are often engaged in simple domestic pursuits such as reading, sewing or flower arranging, although at times, he sought a more intimate portrayal.
