La Musicienne Italienne
(Pierre-Paul-Leon Glaize)


After training with his father Auguste, Glaize studied under Gérome at the École des Beaux-Arts. He first exhibited at the Salon of 1859 with Samson and Delilah and continued to exhibit regularly until the end of the century, receiving Honourable Mentions in 1859 and 1863, Medals in 1864, 1866, 1868 and 1878, and a Silver Medal in 1899.

While Glaize excelled as a genre and portrait painter, he also executed a number of decorative schemes: Notre-Dame de Blac-Manteaux, Paris in 1866; the St. Frances Xavier chapel in St. Merri, Paris; the ceiling of the Theatre des Arts, Rouen (1882); and the Salon des Arts in the Hôtel de Ville, Paris. His work is well represented in museums and collections throughout France.
