Edgar Maxence (French painter) 1871 - 1954
L'Attente, 1894
55 x 46 cm. (21.65 x 18.11 in.)
École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA), Paris, France

Maxence exhibited this painting in 1894 during the Concours de la Tête d'Expression Peinte.

Edgar Maxence was taught by Elie Delaunay and Gustave Moreau at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He is a contemporary of Henri Evenepoel, Jules Flandrin, Albert Marquet, Henri Matisse, Léon Printemps, Georges Rouault and other notable alumni from this famous school. He exhibited in the Salon des Artistes Français from 1894 until 1939, and was active on the salon's committees and juries. Maxence combined highly trained technique with a taste for medieval and mythical subjects, and hermetic imagery, and he exhibited at the Salon de la Rose+Croix from 1895 to 1897.

In 1920 he painted the image of Our Lady on the vaulted ceiling of the choir in the Basilica of the Rosary in Lourdes. He also illustrated the book Sainte-Jeanne-d'Arc (1945) by Jean-Joseph-Léonce Villepelet (bishop of Nantes 1936-1966).
