Name: Leon Delachaux
Dates: (1850 - 1919)
Nationality: Swiss
Biography: Léon Delachaux was born in Switzerland of French parents but spent much of his early life in the United States. He is listed as a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1876, 1879, 1880, and 1881, and he frequently exhibited in the Academy’s annuals during the 1880s and as late as 1898, after he had returned to Europe. He also exhibited at the National Academy of Design and the Brooklyn Art Association in New York. About 1884 he moved to Paris, where he became a pupil of Ernest-Ange Duez (1843-1896) and Pascal-Adolphe-Jean Dagnan-Bouveret (1852-1929). He exhibited at the Paris Salon, winning a bronze medal in 1889, and was a chevalier of the Legion of Honor. Delachaux is noted for his genre scenes, particularly intimate interiors, which show the influence of his French background and training.
