French painter of religious scenes executed in a traditional style of poetic realism. An intimate painter, he shows care and reflection in the arrangement of the elements of decor and high refinement and accuracy in his choice of colours.
The younger brother of the painter Franck Bail, Joseph Bail received his earliest training from his father, Antoine Jean Bail, a practitioner of the realistic tradition of genre subjects, before going through the studio of Jean-Léon Gérôme and that of Carolus-Duran.
Working in his Parisian workshops in rue Legendre and in Bois-le-Roi, rue de la Mairie, he exhibited one of his last works in 1921, La Citronnade, and died a few weeks later in Neuilly-sur-Seine on 28 November 1921.
