Urbain Huchet

Internationally acclaimed and considered one of the greatest living French artists, Urbain Huchet is a master of contemporary Impressionism. His paintings and lithographs celebrate a wide spectrum of life ranging from delightful vignettes of the Parisian scene to the inspired beauty of dramatic seascapes and the French countryside.

In 1930, after studying law and owning a textile factory for four years, he decided to devote himself entirely to painting. His first three years as an artist were spent in Pont-Aven, following in the footsteps of Gauguin and Emile Bernard both of whom influenced him greatly. Many of his paintings of this period express his love of the sea and the Brittany coast.

After moving to Paris in 1963, his love of adventure and travel led him to spend time painting and writing in Europe, the Middle East and South America where he produced marvelous imagery capturing the essence of the lands and people.

His wonderful depictions of circus performers, musicians and everyday people were strongly influenced by his adventures and sojourns in foreign lands.

Exhibitions of his work have been held throughout Europe, the United States and the Middle East. Paris, however, is where the largest number of his works have been produced. At least 300 editions of lithographs have been printed of his works, all produced by the artist himself in workshops in Paris and Cannes.
