The son of a successful psychiatrist, Jacques-Émile Blanche became a very successful portraitist, with a style reminiscent of 18th-Century English painters such asThomas Gainsborough, revisited by Ingres, Manet and John Singer Sargent. The fascinating gallery of portraits he left includes Proust, the chanteuse Yvette Guilbert, the Countess of Castiglione (a patient of his father), James Joyce, Degas, Debussy, Rodin, Colette, and John Singer Sargent.
