THEOPHILE CHAUVEL (French / 1831-1910)

Théophile Narcisse Chauvel was born in Paris. He studied at the Beaux-Arts under Picot, Aligny, and Bellel. Chauvel made his debut at the salon of 1855 with a landscape painting, Souvenir du parc de Neuilly. Although Théophile Chauvel continued exhibiting as a painter until 1876, from about 1861 he largely devoted himself to etching. Chauvel was one of the pioneers of the French etching revival. As well as original works, Théophile Chauvel also etched plates after other artists, particularly Corot and the Barbizon School, with whom his own art was so in sympathy.
