This is an important piece on the development of the style and oeuvre of Paul Elie Ranson.

Ranson studied art history at the Ecoles des Arts Décoratifs in Limoges. In 1888, he moved to Paris and studied at the Académie Julian. He started a workshop in the artist district of Montparnasse and mingled in the prominent artist circles, including Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Ker-Xavier, Aristide Maillol, Félix Vallotton and Edouard Vuillard.

Ranson was close friends with Paul Sérusier, with whom he founded the artist group Les Nabis. The work of Ranson was strongly influenced by Sérusiers symbolistic, synthetic style, with large colour surfaces and clear contours. Influences by Paul Gauguin are also clearly recognisable.

In 1908, Ranson started the Académie Ranson together with Paul Sérusier. This rapidly grew into a renowned art education, with leading teachers such as Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Roger Bissière, Ker-Xavier, Moise Kisling, Gustave Singier and Aristide Maillol.

After Ransons death in 1909, the academy was continued by his wife and later by his son Michel. A lot of Ransons's work is currently in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
