Born October 16, 1874 in Paris. Died in July 1946 in Moëlan (Finistère, France)
French painter of animated landscapes, landscapes, townscapes, painter with gouache and pastel. Post-Impressionist style.
His father, a designer of lace, brought him into a decoration workshop, where he soon was destined to the wall decoration. Then, very influenced by Impressionist theories, he began an artistic career. He got friendly, circa 1903, with Quost that made him work drawing and gave him the taste for painting. He lived for a year in Dreux and Moret for his vacation. Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1923, he was elected member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Vuillard's chair in 1940.
In 1893 he made the first shipment at the Salon of French Artists, but refused, and so for ten years, he was received in 1903. He exhibited after the First World War at the Salon of French Artists. He won medals in 1907 and 1910; won the Rosa Bonheur prize in 1920; and he was appointed associate and committee member of the Jury at the Salon of French Artists after receiving the medal of honor. His work enjoyed widespread success. His technique - distant legacy of impressionism - seduced by his virtuosity.
