Lucien Henri Grandgérard was a french post-impressionist landscape painter.
The artist was pupil of Bonnat, Lefebvre and Merson and so he had an excellent education. He exhibited his paintings at the Paris Salon. In addition, he worked as an etcher. Grandgérard received several honorable awards.
In the early years, and then again at the end of his career Grandgérard engaged in landscape painting, which mainly focuses on motifs of the Marne. In the 1930s and '40s he had great success with figurative scenes and interiors. Subjects of dancers and nudes in the boudoir were in those days very well received.
