Marcel Brunery biography
Marcel Brunery was born in Paris and came from a family of respected artists. He was the Grandson of Francesco Gonin (Turin 1808 - Giaverno 1889) who painted romantic subjects for the Royal Piedmont Court and the son of Francois Brunery (Turin 1849 -Paris 1926). Although the Brunery family established themselves as artists in Paris and London they never forgot their Italian origins.

Marcel painted cardinal and historical scenes. His style (like many other artists of this genre) was to make fun of the Lords of the Church and he delighted in portraying them in domestic dramas. Brunery's paintings showed that the clergy was no different from the humble flock they presumed to lead and that they were victims of the same mundane trials and tribulations of everyday life.

Brunery's canvases are lavishly painted in a masterly way, accounting for his popularity, which has remained constant over the years.

Exhibited : Independants (1935) 'La Lecon'
