Lot Essay

Born in Draveil, Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg was the son of Austrian painter, Karl Joseph Kuwasseg. Kuwasseg received his initial training from his father but later became a sailor and travelled the world. On his return to France in 1883, he began his formal training and studying under Durand-Brager and d'Isabey. Kuwasseg mainly painted landscapes and seascapes of the Breton and Normandy coast. Kuwasseg exhibited at the Salons des Artistes Français from early on in his career and won a 3rd class medal in 1892. He later became a professor of art, teaching such notable pupils as Iwill and Emile Clarel. Kuwasseg's delicate yet powerful style was highly valued during his lifetime and he was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the finest artists of his genre.
