Émile Vernon was a student at the Fine Arts school in Tours where he won the first prize for drawing in 1888; afterwards he was then mentored by William Bouguereau and Auguste Truphème.
Then in 1898 he participated in the Tours exhibition of Fine Arts and Decorative Arts and later that year, in the French Artists Exhibition and regularly exhibited hie work there from 1898 to 1913; presenting portraits, landscapes, scenes from Brittany, still life bouquets that he painted in watercolor, as well as feminine figures, which later became is specialty.
Émile excelled in his paintings of softly lighted, adorable figures of children and elegant young women, with whom he often associated a pet such as a cat, dog or bird, and adorned his images with garlands or bouquets of flowers, throughout his career; but he was also a very versatile artist that could paint with rigor and power as in his works the portrait of Madame Vernon and Sous la Lampe (Under the lamp).
