Paul Édouard Rosset-Granger. A French genre and portrait painter who adopted the academic style. Born 1853 in Vincennes. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Alexandre Cabanel, Édouard Louis Dubufe and Alexis-Joseph Mazerolle. He painted portraits, landscapes and genre works, and also made illustrations for the press and publishing houses. From 1878, he exhibited mythological and genre works at the Paris Salons and at the Sociéte nationale des beaux-arts, receiving medals in 1889 and 1890. From 1906 to 1909, he worked with Guillaume Dubufe on decorating the town hall in Saint-Mandé. In 1900, he was invited to paint Le Train blue for the Gare de Lyon restaurant in Paris.
In their style, colour, composition and choice of subjects, Rosset-Granger’s works benefited from his familiarity with Bouguereau, Boulanger and Lefebvre.
He died on 26 July 1934 in his studio located at 17 Avenue Gourgaud in the 17th arrondissement of Paris.
