Jean-Jacques Henner was a French painter, noted for his use of sfumato and chiaroscuro in painting nudes, religious subjects, and portraits. Henner was born at Bernwiller. He began his studies in art as a pupil of Michel-Martin Drolling and Fran ois- douard Picot. In 1848, he entered the cole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and took the Prix de Rome with a painting of Adam and Eve finding the Body of Abel in 1858. In Rome, he was guided by Flandrin, and painted four pictures for the gallery at Colmar among other works. He first exhibited Bather Asleep at the Salon in 1863 and subsequently contributed Chaste Susanna, now in the Mus e d'Orsay. Other noted works include: Byblis turned into a Spring; The Magdalene; Portrait of M.
