Louis-Claude Paviot is a painter-engraver. His art is faithful to the Impressionist lesson.
Originally from Lhuis, in the Ain region, Paviot would have been a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, then a boarder at the Académie Julian in 1895, where he was a pupil of J.P Laurens and Doucet.
He seems to have made a career in Paris, exhibiting with Berthe Weill from 1905 to 1924 at least, more than in Lyon. He exhibited as early as 1896 at the Salon des Indépendants, and also at the Salon de la Société lyonnaise des Beaux-Arts from 1895 to 1901.
At the turn of the century, critics ranked him among the leading artists. In his review of that year's Salon des Indépendants in Le journal, G. Geffroy placed Paviot among the heirs of Monet and Cézanne, in the company of Bonnard, Vuillard, A. André, Camoin and Valtat. In the Cahiers d'Art et de Littérature of May 1905, J. Holl's review of the Salon des Indépendants refers to him as "a colorful realist".
In 1907, he took part in the adventure of the Salon d'Automne de Lyon with Eugène Brouillard and Jacques Martin until 1918. In the 20s and 30s, he regularly exhibited at the SLBA and the Salon d'Automne. He was admitted to the Salon du Sud-Est from 1934 to 1940.
The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon owns two paintings by Louis Paviot, La toilette, 1906, and Maisons sous la neige, 1902.
Here Claude Paviot paints a woman drinking tea in the manner of Degas or Mary Cassat.
The painter probably drew his inspiration from Impressionist painting, which excelled in depicting cafés, the fashionable meeting places of the 19th century.
The framing gives the impression of a snapshot taken by a witness sitting at a nearby table.
