Julien Gustave Gagliardini, pseudonym of Julien Gustave Gaillardin, born in Mulhouse on 1 March 1846 and died in Paris in the 18th arrondissement on 28 November 1927, was a French painter and engraver.
Gagliardini was first a student of the history painter Claude Soulary before joining Léon Cogniet's studio at the École des beaux-arts de Paris. He then moved towards figurative painting. He made his debut at the 1869 Salon with portraits and genre paintings. He abandoned historical subjects in favour of landscapes to which he devoted himself from the 1880s onwards, mainly illustrating the sites of Auvergne and the Midi, his favourite subjects until the end of his life. He benefited from several government purchases (Coup de midi, Provence 1880, Plein midi, Plein midi, Auvergne 1891, Venice 1913) and obtained an honourable mention in 1883, a third class medal in 1884, a second class medal in 1886, a silver medal at the 1889 Paris Exposition and a gold medal at the 1900 Paris Exposition. He was knighted by the Légion d'honneur in 1893.
A small restoration is to be expected - a slash of 2cm on the left - and at the centre of the canvas - see photo.
