Charles Camoin


Charlos Camoin born in Marseille in 1879 was a Fauvist painter. Camoin studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Marseille. In 1898 he moves to Paris and there is introduced to the work of Henri Matisse. At that time he mostly painted light and impressionistic landscapes. When Camoin comes into contact with Paul Cezanne in Aix-en-Provence in 1901, a friendship develops between the two artists. In 1903 he moved into a studio in Paris and took part in exhibitions at the Salon des Independants and at the Salon d’Automne together with Matisse and Maurice de Vlaminck, among others. This is where his bright expressionist works are created. When he holds his first solo exhibition, his work is shown by well-known art dealers in several galleries in Europe and New York. After the First World War, Camoin painted lighter works with a lot of attention for the atmosphere, mostly landscapes and portraits of his wife. During the Second World War, Camoin resides in Saint-Tropex and often paints the bay there. His work is in the possession of several French museums.
