Franz (Francois) Gailliaird was a friend of American painter James Abbott McNeill Whistler, having studied at the Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels under masters such as Jean François Portaels (1818-1895), Joseph Stallaert (1825-1903), François Bossuet (1798-1889) and Paul Lauters (1806-1875). His contemporaries include James Ensor (1860-1949), Léon Frédéric (1865-1940) and Fernand Khnopff (1858-1921). Gailliard is known as a Luminist (a type of neo-Impressionism), a genre that includes the early pointillist works of Dutch painters such as Jan Toorop (1848-1928), Leo Gestel (1881-1941), and Piet Mondrian (1872-1944).
Galliard’s paintings have sold for as high as $125,000 at auction.
