Artist. Born in Paris, France, he was a painter, sculptor and printmaker, known for his insight into the fashions of the Impressionist art era. His publication of "Parisian Characters" at the end of the 19th Century, captured the French themes of the street and local people going about their lives. His works were held in high regard by many influential critics, being displayed in Europe and Amercia. His "Les buveurs d'absinthe" (1881), is on permanent display in the California Palace of Legion of Honor Art Museum in San Francisco. He made a number of sculptures, but most are in private collections. In the later years of his life, he concentrated on color printmaking. He died at age 73 in Paris, France.
