Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg biography
Born in Draveil, Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg was the son of Austrian painter, Karl Joseph Kuwasseg. Initially Charles Euphrasie trained and worked with his father but later became a sailor and travelled the world.

On his return to France in 1883, he began his formal artistic training and studied under Durand-Brager and d'Isabey. Charles Euphrasie specialised in painting landscapes of the Breton and Normandy coast, seascapes of the North Sea and scenes of the outskirts of Paris. He collaborated with the artist Poilpot on a series of different landscapes. Kuwasseg exhibited at the Salons des Artistes Francais from early on in his career and won a 3rd class medal in 1892. He later became a professor of art, teaching such notable pupils as Iwill and Emile Clarel.

Kuwasseg's delicate yet strong style was highly valued during his lifetime and he was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the finest artists of his genre.
