Supplemental information


Eugène Cuvelier
French, 1837-1900

Eugène Cuvelier was born in Arras, France in 1837. His father, Adalbert Cuvelier, was a well to do merchant and an amateur painter and proficient photographer. Cuvelier's early artistic education took place at home and in his village of Arras. Adalbert taught him the technical aspects of photography and the two premier painters of Arras- Constant Dutilleux and Xavier Dourlens took him on painting expeditions where his creative individuality would blossom. In 1852 Dutilleux introduced Adalbert to the foremost landscape painter of the time, Camille Corot, and the two quickly became best friends. Corot, as well as other Barbizon painters such as, Jean-Francois Millet and Theodore Rousseau had a great impact on Eugène Cuvelier. As a young artist he was deeply influenced by these men as can be seen in his photographs. A large amount of his images were made at the Forest of Fontainebleau near Barbizon. This 42,000 acre forest was a haven for Cuvelier and it is here that he created his soft meditative images of landscapes in the style of Barbizon print makers and painters. Working with paper negatives, printed on both albumen and salted papers, he achieved a painterly effect which is truly reminiscent of the Barbizon style.
