MAURICE ELIOT (French / 1864-1945)

The painter and lithographer Maurice Eliot was born in Paris. Eliot first studied in the atelier of Émile Bin, where he met Signac and Henri Rivière. Eliot then entered the Beaux-Arts, Paris, where he was a pupil of Adolphe Yvon and of Cabanel. Maurice Eliot was born in Paris, and specialised in Parisian subjects. For forty years Maurice Eliot taught pastel and drawing at the École Polytechnique. He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français, and was a founder memeber of the Salon d'Automne. Maurice Eliot was the brother of the writer and artist Jeanne Eliot. Maurice Eliot was highly regarded as a lithographer, but in fact produced very few lithographs. An article by Henri Beraldi in 1903 mentions 7 (including both of ours, Printemps and Parisienne); Bailly-Herzberg's Dictionnaire de l'Estampe en France mentions half a dozen others, again singling out both of our prints for particular mention.
