EUGENE CORNEAU (French / 1894-1976)

Eugène Corneau was born in Vouzeron, Berry. He specialised in landscapes, seascapes, and village and city scenes. Corneau's paintings of Paris - shown for instance at the Galerie Schoellerin in 1939 - were much admired, as were his depictions of North Africa. Within France, much of Corneau's work depicts the countryside of his native Berry, or the coast of Brittany. He made his first etchings in 1920, and his first lithographs in 1924. In 1932 Eugène Corneau was elected a member of the Peintres Graveurs Français. From 1954-1962 he taught at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris.
