LOUIS BORGEX (French / 1873-1959)

The painter and lithographer Louis Borgex was born Luis Bourgeois in Fontaines-Saint-Martin in the Rhône in 1873. At the start of his career he signed himself L. Borgex (as on our lithograph from 1898); later he signed L. Bourgeois-Borgex. Borgex studied under Jean-Louis Loubet and Adolphe Castex-Desgrange at the Beaux-Arts, Lyon, and then under Gérôme at the Beaux-Arts, Paris. Lithographs form an important part of his oeuvre, favourite subjects being fisherfolk and landscapes.
