LOUIS JEAN CHARBONNEL (French / 1845-1885)

Louis Jean Charbonnel was born in Bélinais (Cantal). Charbonnel studied under Léon Cogniet, Gérôme, and Carolus Duran. He experienced early success, exhibiting at the Salon de Paris between 1868-1882. The art of Louis Jean Charbonnel was influenced by that of Gustave Courbet. He died young, three years after ceasing to exhibit; the cause of death, according to family sources, was "chagrin", possibly connected with disappointments in his artistic career.
