“La Fontaine” by Rupert Bunny

“La Fontaine” was painted by Rupert Bunny, who was a magnificent colorist and erudite painter of classic themes.  This painting is representative of his ambitious Salon paintings. Bunny traveled back and forth between Australia and France on many occasions until 1933, when he returned permanently to Australia and settled in South Yarra, Victoria.

Rupert Bunny (1864 – 1947) was an Australian painter, who achieved success and critical acclaim as an expatriate in fin-de-siècle Paris. He gained an honorable mention at the Paris Salon of 1890 and a bronze medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900. The French state acquired 13 of his works for the Musée du Luxembourg and regional collections.
