François Martin-Kavel was a French genre painter who is best known for his idealized portraits of beautiful young women, which he often depicted in exotic costumes or in titillating states of undress.
Martin-Kavel notably often painted his female portraits in centered compositions that were surrounded by dark fabric backgrounds, and theatrically lit as though by spotlight shining on the model.
Even though François his known for his popular female figure portraits, he was also well known for his still life floral artwork and landscape paintings; and was a regular exhibitor at the Salon des Artistes Français.
As a member of the salon, he was awarded a medal for his artistic contributions in 1881.
