CLAUDE E. (EUGENE)
1841 – 1922 Paris in France
Eugene Claude was a painter of genre, still life, flowers and fruits. Unfortunately he left us with little written material about his life. But fortunately he left us his paintings!
He exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1861 where in 1885 he was awarded an honourable mention and in 1887 and a medal. He was awarded a third class medal at the Universal Exposition of 1889. The majority of his works were painted of kitchen scenes with fruit, still life and game birds.
He exhibited at the Glasgow Institute of Art in 1886. His approach of his still lifes is informal and “countrylike” full of atmosphere.
His works are to be found in the museums of Alger, Amiens, Calais, Cambrai, Mulhouse, Saintes, Toulouse and Troyes
His works have been auctioned throughout Europe, the UK and the USA
