Laurent was born in Gentilly, France on 8 June 1859. He became a painter of figures, portraits, landscapes and was also a printmaker. Laurent was a neo-impressionist artist who studied under Hevert, Lehman and Luc-Oliver Merson. He was a childhood friend of Seurat and used Pointillism to create a blurred effect with his paintings, as with this piece. His portraits and figure studies were highly regarded. He won many prizes including an honourable mention at the Salon des Artistes Francais in Paris in 1883, a third place medal in 1885, a travel grant in 1885, a bronze medal and the Grand Prix de Rome in 1889, a second-place medal in 1895, and a gold medal in 1900 at the Exposition Universelle. Laurent was made a Chevalier of the Legion d’ Honneur in 1903. Pointillist works are extremely difficult to create which is why they are so rarely found in the art market today.
Laurent died in Bièvres on 25 June 1929 and is buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery.
