Λίστα προϊόντων δημιουργού Cauchois Eugène Henri
A promising show of youthful talent encouraged the young Eugène Henri Cauchois (French, 1850–1911) to leave his native Rouen to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, becoming a pupil, first of Ferdinand Duboc, and later Alexandre Cabanel, who was among the most highly regarded artists of fashionable mid-19th-century Paris. Cauchois, as a pupil, assisted his master in working on great decorative panels for Paris’s most fashionable noble houses, as well as the palace of Emperor Napoleon III, for whom he was court painter, and the Empress EugénieMore
From Cabannel, Cauchois learned a sense of scale. He excelled at painting large decorative canvases, usually depicting nature. In addition, still lifes became his specialty, using fruit, vegetables, game, and gardens, as well as clocks, vases, and other artifacts, occasionally within a landscape. The vast majority of his pictures, however, are floral compositions, with roses, chrysanthemums, peonies, larkspur, hollyhocks, and all manner of wild flowers amassing into a strong statement of fresh, lively color.
His first painting to be accepted for exhibition was at the Salon of 1874, and, thereafter, he exhibited his work widely. Elected to membership at the Société des Artistes Français in 1890, his work was of medal-winning caliber. In 1898, he won a third, in 1900, he won a bronze medal, and with one of his exhibits in 1904, he won a second-prize medal. It was during these years of success that his decorative flower painting reached its peak. One of his best known works was done in situ in a Paris école: a series of panels depicting the flowers of all the seasons.
Today, his work is very well regarded, in particular, the still-life subjects. His paintings can be seen in collections around the world, including museums in Louviers, Perpignan, Aux Halles, and Rouen, as well as in the school of the VIIe arondissement in Paris, where the artist once executed a series of paintings portraying floral arrangements.Less
