|Charles E. Kuwasseg, French, 1838-1904.|
Signed: Lower left.
Marine, landscape and topographical painter and watercolourist, Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg was born in Draveil, France on September 29, 1838, the son of the notable Austrian artist, Karl-Josef Kuwasseg. Recieved basic training from his father, and later studied under Jean Baptiste Henri Durand-Brager and Louis Gabriel Eugene Isabey. Made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1855, and exhibited with the equally important Salon des Artistes Francais, where he won a bronze medal in 1892. Became a professor at the Salon, with students including Marie Joseph-Clavel and Emil Clavel. Much of his youth was spent at sea with his father, and he became a keen sailor and traveller, thus he is particularly noted for his paintings of windblown sailing boats on the Brittany Coast and North Sea, and seaports in Northern Europe. He also depicted the Normandy countryside and the Parisian working class in a realistic but delicate, sincere style. Died in 1904. Represented in private collections and museums across France, including Pontoise, Rouen, Perigueux, La Rochelle, and Digne, as well as Montreal, Canada.
