Edouard Cortes Paintings For Sale

Edouard Léon Cortès, the son of the painter Antonio Cortès, was sent to the front during World War I to sketch enemy positions. In civilian life, his base was in Lagny in the former studio of Cavallo-Peduzzi, although he travelled extensively in France, notably in Normandy, Brittany, the Champagne region and Savoy, painting as he went.

Edouard Cortès exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Artistes Français (of which he became a member in 1907), the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, the Autumn and Winter Salons, and the Salon des Artistes Indépendants. As a lifelong resident of Lagny, he also set up and presided over the Groupe de Lagny. Cortès was the recipient of numerous awards and distinctions, including nomination in 1929 to the rank of Officier de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts, the award of the Croix d'Honneur as a Chevalier de l'Education Sociale (1931), and elevation to the rank of Chevalier of the Order des Arts et des Lettres.
