Francois Gall, Hungarian by birth, became a naturalized French citizen in 1942. He is best known as an impressionist painter in the pure French tradition. He began his artistic studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and was awarded a scholarship in 1930 from the Hungarian government. Six years later: Francois Gall established himself in Paris and became a student of Devambez at the National Academy of Fine Arts. The artist greatly admired the first generation of Impressionists and adopted their concepts for his own interpretations. Parisian scenes and portrayals of women engaged in typically feminine activities were among his preferred subjects, but his repertoire also included landscapes and still-life composition that were the trademarks of his works. The artist participated in various Salon exhibitions in Paris and became a favorite with the public. In 1963 he was honored with the Francis Smith Prize. He died in 1987.
