Blanchard studied sculpture and drawing in his home town of Renne before moving to Paris where he continued his studies. Blanchard’s subjects were centred on Paris and the city’s street life, often drawing on scenes of the past for inspiration in a time of great change. His characteristic hazy style is reminiscent of the great impressionists.
