Ranson was one of the central Nabi painters. In fact, he started the Académie Ranson with his wife, Marie-France Ranson; the school espoused the Nabi cause, and served as a haunt for famous Nabi painters to congregate, teach and attend. Though Ranson was intimately linked with the Nabi, a great portion of his style was derived from Japanese influences, with the two forms joining into something that appears nearly to be a part of the Art Nouveau movement. A very central and strange artist.
