Paul Ernest Sanson (1836-1918), Architect. The Hertford British Hospital, Signed with monogram ES., bottom right. Pencil, pen & ink and watercolour on paper. Mounted (No frame)
The building is located at Levallois-Perret in France and was constructed by the architect Paul-Ernest Sanson for Sir Richard Wallace (1818-1890), a Member of Parliament of Great Britain and Ireland. Sanson was a distinguished French architect who trained in the Beaux-Arts manner. He entered the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris at the age of eighteen, and followed the courses offered by Émile Gilbert. Having received his diploma in 1861, he apprenticed first in the office of Denis-Louis Destors and Charles-Auguste Questel and then with Antoine-Nicolas Bailly, who passed his practice to Sanson when he retired in 1865. Sanson quickly made a grand reputation among aristocrats and the rich haute bourgeoisie for his châteaux and grand Parisian town houses.
