FRANÇOIS JOSEPH GUIGUET (French / 1860-1937)

François Joseph Guiguet was born in Corbelin, Isère. Because of his outstanding talent, Guiguet was taken on as a teenage apprentice by the solitary, curmudgeonly painted Auguste Ravier, the friend and disciple of Corot. This 3-year apprenticeship saw the young Guiguet arrive “fully armed” at the Beaux-Arts, Lyon, where he entered the class of Michel Dumas, who had been a pupil of Ingres. Subsequently he went to the Beaux-Arts, Paris, where he was a pupil of Cabanet. Guiguet became friends with Puvis de Chavannes and Degas, but forged his own intimiste style, based on his profound knowledge of the techniques of the French masters.
