Agard, Charles-Jean (1866-1950) Savignac-de-Nontron(Dordogne)-Nesles-la-Vallee (Val d’Oise)

Post-Impressionist. Painter of portraits, landscapes & still-lifes. Studied at the School of Fine Arts in Paris & spent most of his life in the Dordogne. Puvis de Chavannes encouraged & promoted his talent & in the 1890s he was already holding joint exhibitions with Henri Lebasque & Georges Seurat. Pissaro said: ‘As an exemplar of a draughtsman Charles Agard has no equal.’

His drawings & sketches have a powerful simplicity of line.

John Linnell Bond (1766-1837). The Three Marys.
This is probably a study for a commission.
The Three Marys, known as the Holy Women at the Sepulchre, were the first to discover the empty  tomb of Christ. They came in the morning bearing spices & aromatic oils to anoint the body but found that the stone sealing the tomb had been rolled away & the tomb empty. The angel of the resurrection announced that Christ had risen. There is no general agreement as to who these three women were.
(Matt. 28:1-8; Mark 16: 1-8; Luke 24: 1-11; John 20: 1-9)
