Étienne-Adolphe Piot was born in Digoin, Saône-et-Loire, France. He moved to Paris and studied under Léon Cogniet.[a] He first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1850, so would probably have been born in the 1820s. In 1860 he was among the painters whose work was shown at the Exposition de Bourdeaux. In 1864 he was living in New York City, and that year exhibited a portrait at the National Academy of Design. In 1869 he was again living in Paris, at 21 quai Malaquais in the 6th arrondissement. Up to 1876 he exhibited under the name of Adolphe Piot. After then he began to also use the names Adolphe-Étienne Piot and Étienne-Adolphe Piot.
In 1873 Adolphe Piot was described as “a Parisian painter of some name in treating Italian subjects”. He was very successful commercially, taking advantage of the increasing demand for portraits from wealthy Parisians. During the Belle Époque every debutante had to have her portrait painted, and Piot was skilled in making captivating portraits. Piot became a member of the Société des Artistes Français in 1883. In 1890 he received an honorable mention for the work he exhibited at 1889 Exposition Universelle. His last Salon entry seems to have been submitted in 1909.[b]
Most of Piot’s Salon early Salon submissions were commissioned portraits of women. With the 1870 Salon he began to exhibit genre works with titles such as Abandonée (The Abandoned), Coquetterie (Coquetry), and La Lettre (The Letter). Adolphe Piot created expressive depictions of beautiful women, with dark backgrounds to draw attention to the subject, and also made many works showing children. His works were innocent, picturesque and elegant, appealing to middle class tastes of the time.

A nude study by Canadian painter Hilton Hassell – titled “Standing Nude”
Painting without frame measures 24 inches high x 14 inches wide.
Original Hilton Hassell label on the reverse.
During Hassell’s early years, a Canadian art movement, formed by a loose fraternity of artists known as The Group of Seven, was beginning to emerge. Concentrating mainly on the Canadian landscape, they were dedicated to the belief that Canadian art must be truly inspired by Canadian nature itself. In 1929, Hassell studied under two of the original members of the group, JEH MacDonald and FH Johnson; as well as JW Beattie at the Ontario College of Art. They encouraged Hassell and, inspired by their work, Hassell went on to explore different styles, eventually blending the flow of forms which he ‘saw’ in nature. Later, AY Jackson and Hassell painted together on Georgian Bay. He became friends with another member of the group, AJ Casson.
This is a finely rendered oil painting by an unknown artist depicting a woman and her two small children seeking sanctuary from an approaching storm. Her daughter buries her face in her skirts and covers her eyes as the babe in arms looks over his mother’s shoulder, as the woman bends on one knee in supplication, poised to knock on a heavy wooden door. In the background, a cross stands on the edge of a wooded path, leading through the mountains. The sky above is dark and stormy. The little girl’s scarf appears to be blown by the wind. The canvas has been re-lined and the frame is 20th century.
