Who is Alexis Jean Fournier?
Alexis Jean Fournier was an American artist. He is well known in Minnesota for his naturalistic paintings of Minneapolis and St. Paul landmarks, such as Farnham's Mill, which was one of the earliest mills established in Minneapolis.[1] Fournier is also renowned beyond Minnesota as an important figure in the Arts and Crafts movement.[2]

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota on July 4, 1865, Fournier was raised in Wisconsin by French Canadian parents. In 1879, at the age of fourteen, Fournier moved to Minneapolis. Aspiring to be an artist, Fournier found work painting signs and stage scenery. Creating stage scenery gave him more time for his own painting and gave him experience painting panoramas, a popular nineteenth century art form. He began to experience modest success as a landscape painter.[2]

In 1886, Fournier attended a class at the newly established Minneapolis School of Art. The school was directed by Boston artist Douglas Volk, and Fournier soon took private lessons with him. Under Volk's instruction, Fournier developed a more subtle sense of color and a brushier style.[2]

During the next three years, Fournier married his first wife Emma and had two children, Grace and Paul. He also began supporting his family as a full-time artist. He rented a studio above a tailor's shop at 412 Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis.[2]

Fournier was invited to travel around the American Southwest with patron H. Jay Smith in 1891. After the trip, Fournier painted an acclaimed 50x12 foot panoramic mural that depicted stone dwellings in cliffs in the Mesa Verde region of Colorado that had been constructed by Ancient Puebloans. The panoramic was displayed at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, where thousands of people saw the mural and heard Fournier interpret it publicly.[2]
After Rain, on Minnehaha Creek (1897)

Continuing to grow as an artist, in 1893, Fournier traveled to Paris, France, where he studied at the Académie Julian. His trip was funded by several benefactors, including James J. Hill. In France, Fournier was strongly influenced by the Barbizon school, a group of nineteenth century French painters who were drawn to natural landscapes and romanticism.[2]

Between 1895 and 1901, Fournier made several more trips to Paris. In between, he returned to Minneapolis and continued painting Twin Cities landmarks. He also became associated with the Arts and Crafts movement, an arts revival emphasizing handmade crafts. Arts and Craft movement leader John Scott Bradstreet invited Fournier to paint murals in Twin Cities dining rooms that he was commissioned to decorate.[2]

Fournier's connection to the Arts and Crafts movement deepened in 1903 when he moved to East Aurora, New York, home of the Roycroft arts community. The community started as a printing shop but evolved to include book art, pottery, metalwork, jewelry, and furniture. The community's leader, Elbert G. Hubbard, had been friends with Fournier for several years. Fournier's move to East Aurora came after Hubbard invited him to be the Roycroft community's permanent art director.[2]

Hubbard was a flamboyant man, and he traveled around the country giving lectures. Fournier, known for his charming personality and good humor, went with Hubbard on many of these trips. Fournier kept Hubbard company and exhibited his paintings at the lectures, bringing his work to a broader audience. Despite these travels and the many winters he spent in Minneapolis, Fournier was publicly identified with East Aurora and the Roycroft community.[2]

The Roycroft community changed in 1915 when Hubbard and his wife died aboard the Lusitania, an ocean liner that was famously torpedoed by Germans during World War I. After his friend's passing, Fournier became close to a group of regional painters in Brown County, Indiana. He influenced their style, but they also influenced his. His paintings from Indiana were brighter and more impressionistic than his earlier work.[2]

Fournier's first wife died and he sold his home in Minneapolis in 1921. He moved to Indiana the next year, when he remarried a widow whose husband had been linked to the Brown County artists. He continued to spend summers in East Aurora. After the death of his second wife in 1937, he moved to East Aurora permanently, and in 1941 he married a third time.[2]

In 1948, at the age of eighty-two, Fournier slipped on an icy sidewalk and sustained injuries resulting in his death. Through his landscape paintings and his role in the Arts and Crafts movement, Fournier made a lasting influence on American art. His obituaries revered him as "the last of the Barbizon painters," since his style and admiration for the natural world brought the Barbizon tradition well into the twentieth century. His paintings were exhibited around the world during his lifetime and continue to be displayed and collected.[2]

Biography: Alexis Jean Fournier (1865-1948): American Arts and Crafts / Impressionist Painter. Alexis Jean Fournier is an American-born Arts and Crafts and Impressionist painter. He was the chosen painter of the Roycroft group—the Arts and Crafts movement in America—and its leader Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915). Fournier grew up in Wisconsin.

He sought formal training at the Minneapolis School of Art under Douglas Volk [1856-1935] and later in 1893 at the Academie Julian in Paris. In 1891, Fournier traveled to the American Southwest with patron H. Jay Smith to make a study of the landscape to paint a 50 foot mural for the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. He is known to have painted along the Mississippi River, in Minneapolis, in Brown County as part of the Brown County Impressionist painters of Indiana and in East Aurora, near Buffalo, NY in association with the Roycroft colony. In 1948, Fournier died from injuries sustained from slipping on an icy sidewalk.

He is also one of the most recognized American painters in the Barbizon style. Fornier was born on July 4, 1865 in St. Paul, Minnesota. He began his artistic career in his teenage years, working as a sign painter and traveling to the San Juan Valley to sketch homes of cliff dwellers for the 1893 Worldâ??s Fair in Chicago. Fournier later attended the Minneapolis Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied under Douglas Volk. He furthered his studies abroad at the Julian Academy in Paris. He also spent several years at the Barbizon School, studying the works of masters Jean-François Millet, Theodore Rousseau, and Charles - François Daubigny. Elbert Hubbard, founder of the Roycroft Arts and Crafts community, discovered Fournier and his work while lecturing in Chicago. Hubbard invited him to Roycroft, and in 1903, Fournier relocated to East Aurora where he contributed several murals to the Roycroft Inn. In addition to his work with Roycroft, Fournier worked with other artist colonies in Woodstock, New York; Provincetown, Massachusetts; and Brown County, Indiana. He was a member of several professional organizations including the National Arts Club, the Cliff Dwellersâ?? Club and the Chicago Galleries Association, and was an honorary member of the Arts Club of Buffalo and the Buffalo Society of Artists... His landscapes are included in collections at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Minnesota Historical Society, the Minnesota Museum of American Art, and the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame."

Auction Date: Feb 06, 2013

Estimate: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: Alexis Jean Fournier
American, 1865-1948
Farm House, Normandy, 1895
Signed Alexis J. Fournier, inscribed Normandie and dated 95 (lr)
Oil on canvas
18 x 22 inches
Unframed
Provenance:
Private collection

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, to French immigrant parents, Alexis-Jean Fournier began his career as a painter of sign and stage scenery. He received his first instruction in 1886 from Douglas Volk, studying both privately and at the Minneapolis School of Art. In 1891, Fournier served as the official artist on H. Jay Smith's 1891 expedition to Colorado and New Mexico. Two years later, with funding by a group of local art patrons, he went to Paris, where he enrolled at the Académie Julian and exhibited a work at the Paris Salon. Dated 1895, this painting is a product of this time in France, the first of several trips to the country for the artist. It portrays a stone manor house probably in or near Dieppe and Arques-la-Bataille, which were the subject of works Fournier exhibited in 1895 and 1896. The balanced composition evokes the harmonious, timeless feeling of its subject.

Alexis Jean Fournier American, 1865-1948 A Peaceful House, Normandee [sic] (Farm)

Lot 92: Alexis Jean Fournier American, 1865-1948 A Peaceful House, Normandee [sic] (Farm)

Auction Date: Nov 19, 2012

Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000

Description: Alexis Jean Fournier
American, 1865-1948
A Peaceful House, Normandee [sic] (Farm)
Signed Alexis J. Fournier and dated indistinctly (ll); inscribed as titled on the stretcher
Oil on canvas
11 1/4 x 18 1/8 inches

Provenance:
Private collection

Dated 1945, Farm was rendered by Alexis-Jean Fournier in the last phase of his career, a time when he was living year-round in East Aurora, New York. However, the farm buildings in the painting look less like those of upstate New York than they do of Normandy. Fournier depicted many such structures in his images of the 1890s, suggesting that he drew on his memoires of his many trips to France for this work. Although Fournier lived in many locales before settling permanently in East Aurora, from the beginning of the century on, he had spent summers there as part of the Roycroft Arts and Crafts colony, begun by Elbert Hubbard, with whom he was close. This painting's strong decorative balance, of vertical line trees and the horizontal farmhouse that spans most of the canvas, would be have fit in well within an arts and crafts designed home.
