Lionel Noel Royer (French 1852 - 1926)

Heavily influenced by the French Academic school, with an emphasis on romance and the neoclassic style, painter Lionel Noel Royer would be known for his scenes of mythology and religion as well as his historic and portrait paintings.

Studying under such masters as Alexandre Cabanel and William Adolphe Bouguereau played a great role in the later subject matter and techniques chosen by Royer.

He began his studies in the early 1870s and by 1874 was successfully exhibiting in the Paris Salons, where he won a medal that same year. He continued to show throughout the rest of his career, winning further recognition and awards, though he did not always seek to compete with his fellow painters.

His works are in the collections of many museums, including many in France, England and the United States He died in 1926.
