Henri Vincent-Anglade (1876-1956) was born on May 9, 1876 in Bordeaux, France. He added his mother’s patronymic to his father’s to distinguish himself from his brother, the poster designer René Vincent.
Vincent-Anglade was a pupil of Gustave Moreau, Fernand Corom and Francois Flameng at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and also Amable Pinta.
He exhibited in Paris and regularly appeared at the usual exhibitions, especially the Salon des Artistes Français, where he was awarded a distinction in 1903.
Early in his career, Vincent-Anglade became a fashionable portrait painter, mainly of intimate paintings of women. He was a regular at greyhound and horse races and was an enthusiast of big game hunting. He was also valued as an animal painter.
Vincent-Anglade died on January 25, 1956, leaving behind him his wife, who was his favorite model and two sons, Michel and Jacques.
