About the Artist

Charles Cottet, French, (1863-1925), was a painter and printmaker. He was regarded in his lifetime as one of the most original artists of his generation and his body of work retains that reputation today.

He is best known for his forceful and firmly designed scenes of life on the Brittany coast and the ordinary lives of the Breton people. His most impressive works were often somber, gloomy and severe in his choice of subject matter and tonal intensity. [DES-4/07]
