Swiss-born Alfred Foretay studied sculpture under Alexandre Falguière at Paris’s School of Fine Arts. He stayed a few years in the capital where he exhibited at the Salon of French Artists in Paris. When he returned to Switzerland around 1910 he dedicated his time to painting. He returned to France between 1918 and 1935 also traveling through Italy. His painting relies on typical lighting and color from each region as executed through his paintbrush.
