IDBURY PRINTS

WILLIAM ABLETT (British / 1877-1937)

Although born to English parents, William Ablett lived in Paris, where he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts under Aublet and Gérome, and exhibited at the Salons. He was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur, and also a member of the Royal Academy in London. In the 1920s, William Ablett put his classical training at the service of creating boudoir prints of fashionable Art Deco ladies, and it is for these images that he is best remembered today.
