Wedding in the Middle Ages From the original painting by A. Moreau

Adrien Moreau was born at Troyes, in the French provinces, and studied in Paris with Pils. He chooses subjects from the earlier periods of French history, which he treats with a certain refinement -even elegance of taste-that renders them very attractive. He received medals in 1876 and 1889, and was given the cross of the Legion of Honour in 1892
