Figure 1.--Here we have a charming pastel portrait of a boy in a sailor outfit signed M. Alleon. Maurice Paul Alleon was a French School portraitist born in Paris in the second half of the 19th Century. The portrait provides a useful insight into the colors used in sailor suits.

Here we have a charming pastel portrait of a boy in a sailor outfit signed M. Alleon. Maurice Paul Alleon was a French School portraitist born in Paris in the second half of the 19th Century. We know virtually nothing about him at this time. He is listed in Benezit (Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs) where details of his work appear. The portrait provides a useful insight into the colors used in sailor suits. Also notice the black scarf and how it is tied.
