Notes: Left a sum of 500 francs, Hamon was able to pursue his artistic tastes with ease. He gained advice from Ingres and entered L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1842. He designed at Sevres from 1848-1853 and exhibited at the Salon from 1847. He gained several medals including a silver in 1867 at the Exposition Universelle. Many of his works were popular as prints and in 1855 he was made Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, considered to be one of the finest painters of genre of his day. His works are housed in many museums, notably Lille, Marseille, Montauban, Nantes, Saint-Brieuc and of course at the Louvre in Paris

No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 17.5% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis
