Eugene Henri Cauchois (1850-1911)

A promising show of youthful talent encouraged the young Cauchois to leave his native Rouen to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, becoming a pupil of Ferdinand Duboc. His subsequent master was the distinguished painter Alexandre Cabannel (1824-1889), who was among the most highly regarded artists of fashionable mid-19th Century Paris. He made still life his speciality, using fruit, vegetables, game, gardens, sometimes clocks, vases and other artefacts, set occasionally within a landscape. The vast majority of his pictures, however, are floral compositions, with roses, chrysanthemums, peonies, larkspur, hollyhocks and all manner of wild flowers with fresh, lively colour.

Today Cauchois' work is very well regarded, in particular the still life subjects. His paintings can be seen in the museums of Louviers, Perpignan, Aux Halles and Rouen.
