Henri Coudour
(French, active 1890–1920)
Still Life with a Doll
Oil on canvas, 16 1/2 × 10 1/2 inches
Inscribed on the reverse: “Je certifie que cette/pienture est de/Henri Coudour/A. Donoyer de Segonzac”
RS 5878


Henri Coudour was born in Montbrison, a town on the Loire River in France. An Associate of the Salon d’Automne, he exhibited with that group and others in Paris, including the Salon des Tuileries. He painted portraits and landscapes, but was particularly noted for his floral still-life compositions. This painting bears an inscription signed by André-Albert-Marie Donoyer de Segonzac (1884–1974), one of the best known artists of the School of Paris, who was evidently familiar enough with Coudour’s work to authenticate this painting after that artist’s death.
