EUGENE CHARVOT (French / 1847-?)

The landscape painter and etcher Eugène Charvot was born in Moulins (Alliers). Charvot was a pupil of Giacomotti and of Léon Bonnat. He made his debut in the Salon des Artistes Français of 1876, exhibiting regularly until the early years of the twentieth century. Charvot took up etching around the turn of the century (our etching from 1902 is the 11th in his oeuvre), and won a "mention honorable" in the printmaking section of the Salon in 1904. Eugène Charvot lived mostly in Geneva, where he exhibited in the Exposition municipale in 1898. Charvot was never a fulltime artist, but was, like Dr. Gachet, a doctor with a passion for art. He was, like Paul Gachet, a personal friend of many artists, including Bastien-Lepage, Harpignies, Baudry, Français, and Friant.
