Ferdinand Gueldry’s best known painting is the The Blood Drinkers, done in 1898, in which a line of pale and languid women queue up in an abattoir for a glass of warm ox blood, with their anemia likely caused by menstrual losses. Gueldry mainly painted oils of animated compositions, landscapes, and nautical scenes. Born into a wealthy family he was also an avid rower, a hobby which became one of his main painting subjects. An international referee in that sport, Gueldry had several opportunities to cross the Channel towards England and participate in the famous Henley Regatta. In 1912 he took part in the paintings category in the art competitions at Stockholm.
