Gustave Jundt studied in Paris, where he was a pupil of Jean
Michel Prosper Guérin and Michel Martin Drolling. From 1856
onwards he exhibited at the Salon in Paris. |
In 1872 his painting "L'Arbre de Noël" was withdrawn because Alsace was no longer part of France since the Franco-Prussian War. He responded with a painting named "Vive la France ! Au revoir l’Alsace" and in 1873 he was invited to the Salon again. In 1880 he received the Légion d'honneur.
