Biography of Artist

Antoine Edouard Joseph MOULINET

(1833 - 1891)

Born in Olouzac, France on February 25, 1833. 

Moulinet was a schoolmaster whose passion for painting earned him a bursary from the French department of Eure-et-Loir to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. It was here that he trained under Gleyre, and, later, Giraud. It was here that he perfected his talent for figurative painting and also showed an interest in still lives.

He made his debut at the Salon in 1859 and continued to exhibit there throughout his career. 

His work featured at the the Paris Exhibitions until 1881. He became a professor of drawing at the Lycee in Chartres where he died in 1891.

Among the works he displayed were: Conciliabule (1879); Le Gué (1882); Deux Amateurs (1883); Le Coup de Collier(1885); and Partie de Billes (1888).

His work can be found in Chartres Museum.
