Tancrede SYNAVE (1860-1936) ✿

French painter and illustrator, Tancrède Synave studied at the Académie Julian alongside Benjamin Constant, Jules Lefebvre and Gabriel Ferrier.

He is the painter of worldly subjects (his favorite subjects are the portraits of women and children), Synave exhibited at the Salon of French Artists throughout his career which ran from 1893 to 1936.
In the 1910s, Tancrède Synave, Jean-Gabriel Domergue and other artists founded an artistic movement called “Tradition evolution”. The aim is to represent works combining research and contemporary artistic novelties with the classical academic tradition from which many artists came. In 1911 he won a competition for the brand of pasta Lustucru with its blue checkerboard still present today on the products of the famous French brand. He received the Medal of Honor in 1894, the Third Class Medal in 1901, and the Gold Medal in 1924.
