Ménard, (Marie Auguste Emile) René

(b Paris, 15 April 1862; d Paris, 13 Jan 1930). French painter. He was the son of the landscape painter René-Joseph Ménard (1827–87) and nephew of the philosopher and writer Louis Ménard. He spent his youth with the Barbizon school of painters. He trained in the studios of William-Adolphe Bouguereau and other artists, but his period at the Académie Julian (from 1880) influenced him to choose a Symbolist style of landscape painting. He combined the French classical tradition of Pierre Henri de Valenciennes and Jean-Victor Bertin with the rural poetry of Jean-François Millet and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. In his frescoes he looked to the monumental classicism of Puvis de Chavannes.
