    Delphin Enjolras was a French academic painter. He painted portraits, nudes, and interiors. His primary mediums were watercolours, oil and pastels. He was born in Courcouron, Ardèche. Enjolras studied under watercolourist Gaston Gerard at the École de Dessin de la Ville de Paris, as well as under the strict academician Jean-Léon Gérôme at the École des Beaux-Arts, and under Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret.

    In his early career, Enjolras painted mainly landscapes; later it became evident that his love was for painting women. He changed genres, focusing mainly on the portraiture of elegant young women by either lamplight or black lighting. He would become an excellent painter of nudes, and many of his later works are of an erotic and sensual nature. From 1890 and onwards, Enjolras exhibited his works at the Paris Salon, joining the Société des Artistes Français in 1901. The Musée du Puy and Musée d’Avignon both have collections of his works.
