Urbain Huchet, 1930 -
Urbain Huchet was born in Rennes, France in 1930. After studying law and owning a textile factory for four years he decided in 1960 to devote himself entirely to painting. Mr. Huchet spent his first three years as an artist in Pont-Aven, following in the footsteps of the Post Impressionist, Gauguin, and Symbolist, Emile Bernard, both of whom influenced him a great deal.
His paintings are a reflection of the landscape of the Brittany region as he has a profound love for the coast. Urbain Huchet has been an exhibiting artist since 1960. He has had shows in New York, London, New Orleans, Egypt and Paris.
