Paul Chocarne-Moreau

French, 1855-1931

Oil on canvas

31 1/2 × 35 2/5 × 1 1/5 in; 80 × 90 × 3 cm

Born in Dijon in 1855, Chocarne-Moreau was formally trained at the Académie des Beaux-Arts under the direction of William Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury. These Academic greats would have a profound influence on the young painter, and their incredible attention to detail and use of color pervades Chocarne-Moreau's oeuvre. Beginning in 1882, Chocarne-Moreau became a popular and regular exhibitor at the Salon, receiving an Honorable Mention in 1886. His humorous and anecdotal works have led many to mark him as an important forerunner to the American painter and storyteller Norman Rockwell, and his charming works remain both important and admired today.
