Victor Marais-Milton was a French artist, born in puteaux (Seine) on 21st July 1872. He was a member of the salon of French artists (Societaire du Salon des Artistes Francais) where he actively exhibited his work from 1892.
Victor M Milton regularly exhibited his work in America where he enjoyed great success. Marais-Milton’s work mainly featured figure subjects and genre themes often incorporating Cardinals and Clerical figures in situations which gently, yet poignantly point an ironical finger at their role and function in the church.
The Bishops, Prelates and Cardinals in there vivid and wonderfully picturesque scarlet are often portrayed in recreational settings, idling their time away playing musical instruments and singing. However Marais-Milton did not offend with such subjects, indeed his humour is so subtle he went on to win several prizes with similar themes.
