About the Artist:

Victor Joseph Roux-Champion (1871-1953), was a French painter, watercolorist, printmaker, engraver, ceramicist and writer. He was born Joseph Victor Roux and adopted the pseudonym “Victor Joseph Roux-Champion” to sign his works.

Champion-Roux works range from Impressionism to Fauvism, sometimes tempted by the audacity of the Nabis. He felt it limited his abilities to attach to any system. It is for his watercolors and printmaking that Roux-Champion is best known. His watercolors, largely washed colors, appear immediate and spontaneous, often even incomplete. [DES-12/15]
