Biography of Artist

1850 - 1911

He was a painter of genre, landscapes, marines, still life, flowers and fruit.

Eugene Henri Cauchois was born in Rouen on the 14th of February 1850. He received his artistic training under the master painters Ferdinand Duboc and Alexandre Cabanel. His soft, colorful and lustrous still lives reflect a strong influence from the great Impressionist artists of his time. Similar to the techniques of the Impressionists, Cauchois’ canvases are created with layer upon layer of loose and fluid brush strokes.

Cauchois exhibited frequently at the Paris Salon and received several awards at the exhibitions including a third place medal in 1898, a bronze medal in 1900, and a 2nd place medal in 1904. Among the works exhibited were Culture de pavots (1891); Après la pluie (1893); Première sortie (1897); Roses de Septembre (1898) and Chez l’horticulteur (1900).

Towards the end of the Nineteenth century he painted several large-scale decorative panels. These works were rendered with a hefty stroke, brilliant naturalism and vibrant color combinations. Cauchois received several commis¬sions for these larger works and was commissioned by the School of the 7th district to paint four decorative panels representing the flowers of the four seasons. He continued to paint until his death in Paris on the 11th of October 1911.
