Victor Charreton

1864 - 1936

Biography

Victor Charreton (1864-1936) belongs to a generation of artists who devoted themselves to ‘le paysage’, just like the Impressionists did before them, paying attention to the influence of seasons, light and colours. Furthermore, he travelled extensively and together with his wife, he visited Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, England, Spain and Morocco.
His evolution tended towards a use of richer and brighter colours, notably in the mauves and violets which characterize his style. Victor Charreton is famous for his landscapes and still-life paintings, often sharing Impressionist preoccupations whilst trying to capture momentary effects of specific times of day or seasons, at sunset or in a snowy landscape.
Victor Charreton was born in Bourgoin (Isère, France) on March 2nd, 1864. After studying law in Paris he ultimately devoted himself to painting.
In 1902 he moved to Paris where he studied with Ernest Victor Hareux and Louis Aime Japy, both of whom were early influences on his work.
He found his inspiration in Paris and through his travels in France. He painted in Montmartre, the Garden of the Luxembourg, the Park Montsouris, Provence, Brittany. Moreover, he travelled to Algeria in 1905, Spain, England, Belgium and Holland in 1913.
Charreton started exhibiting in 1894 in Lyon, with a painting entitled ‘Matin a Montpeyroux’, and later on the same year in Paris at ‘the Salon des Artistes Francais’, with ‘Soir d’Octobre’.
He participated in many exhibitions in France and abroad, in New York (from 1919-1925), Toledo (1926, 1934), Pittsburgh (1933), Cleveland (1934) and in Japan (1920, 1928). In 1931, he inaugurated a museum mainly devoted to his paintings, the Musée Victor Charreton.
He was a teacher at the Académie Julian in Paris from 1919 until 1925.
Charreton died on November 26th, 1936, at the age of 72.
