Henri Coudour
(French, active 1890–1920)
Still Life with a Doll
Oil on canvas, 16 1/2 × 10 1/2 inches
Inscribed in paint on canvas verso: “Je certifie que cette/pienture est de/Henri Coudour/A. Donoyer de Segonzac” [“I certify that this/painting is by/Henri Coudour/A. Donoyer de Segonzac”]


Henri Coudour, who was born at Montbrison on the Loire River, is recorded as an Associate of the Salon d’Automne. He exhibited there and in other Parisian exhibitions, including those of the Salon des Tuileries. He painted portraits, landscapes, and still lifes—especially flowers, as in this example. This painting is not signed, but bears an inscription signed by André-Albert-Marie Donoyer de Segonzac (1884–1974), one of the best-known artists of the School of Paris. Presumably, Donoyer de Segonzac knew Coudour and his work, and was probably asked to authenticate his friend’s paintings after Coudour’s death at the age of thirty.
