Richard Ranft, “La Répétition de Ballet”

"La répétition de ballet"

We have a gorgeous oil painting in the gallery by Swiss painter Richard Ranft. Born in 1862, Ranft began his studies in Switzerland where he was a student of Eugène Sordet and Gustave Courbet. Ranft primarily worked and lived in Paris, starting his painting career with landscape and human figure studies. The majority of his work was produced around 1900, printed in small editions of 25 or 50 by the Delâtre workshop and published by Edmund Sagot. As a member of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Ranft took part in the exhibitions organized by this group.
