PAUL-EMILE COLIN (French / 1867-1949)

Paul-Émile Colin was born in Luneville in Lorrain, and the countryside around remained his favourite subject. He initially trained to be a doctor, but soon abandoned medicine to follow his true vocation as an artist. His friendship with the painter Charles Filiger enabled him to meet Paul Gauguin in 1890, an encounter he remembered vividly for the rest of his life, recalling, "He exuded energy from every pore." As a printmaker, Paul-Émile Colin was especially noted for his wood engravings and etchings; he was prominent in the Société de la gravure sur bois originale. As a painter he was associated with Henri Lebasque and Edouard Cortes.
