DEATH: 1965 CAMOIN
BIRTH: 1856 CROSS
Born on 20 May 1856: Henri-Edmond
Delacroix Cross, French Pointillist
painter who died on 16 May 1910.
— Henri was the only surviving child of Alcide Delacroix, a French adventurer and failed businessman, and the British-born Fanny Woollett. He was encouraged as a youth to develop his artistic talent by his father’s cousin, Dr Auguste Soins. He enrolled in 1878 at the Écoles Académiques de Dessin et d’Architecture in Lille, where he remained for three years under the guidance of Alphonse Colas [1818–1887]. He then moved to Paris and studied under Émile Dupont-Zipcy [1822–1865], also from Douai, whom he listed as his teacher when exhibiting at Salons of the early 1880s. His few extant works from this period are Realist portraits and still-lifes, painted with a heavy touch and somber palette
Henri-Edmond Delacroix did not want to be confused with the great Ferdinand-Victor-Eugène Delacroix [26 Apr 1798 13 Aug 1863] (as if there had been any danger of that!). So, since his mother was English, he Anglicized his name in 1881. Cross studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Lille, and in Paris with François Bonvin. In 1884 he helped organize the Salon des Indépendants, where Georges Seurat exhibited his first painting in the divisionist style. Inspired by this new work, Cross abandoned his academic style and became a follower of Seurat. As a member of the group variously called the divisionists, pointillists, or neoimpressionists, Cross utilized a technique of juxtaposing small dots of pure color to define objects and planes and to create effects of light and shadow.

Died on 20 May 1965: Charles Camoin,
painter born on 23 September 1879. [C'est Camoin qu'a moins de quoi?

— After the death of his father, Charles was brought up by his mother alone, whose endless travels seem to have affected his studies. At 16 he simultaneously enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Marseille, which he attended in the morning, and at the Ecole de Commerce. After winning a prize for drawing, he was encouraged by his mother to enter Gustave Moreau’s studio at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, which he did in May 1898, shortly before Moreau’s death. Although he barely had time to derive any benefit from Moreau’s teaching, he formed several lasting friendships among fellow students later associated with Fauvism: Manguin, Puy, Rouault, Matisse, and especially Marquet [27 Mar 1875 – 13 Jun 1947], with whose work his own shows marked affinities.
— Charles Camoin loses his father at an early age. It is thus his mother who enrolls him at the Beaux-Arts de Paris where he establishes an undying friendship with Henri Matisse and Alber Marquet. Charles Camoin spends his childhood between Paris, Nice, Cannes, Marseilles, southern towns which exert an irresistible attraction on him. During his military service, for which he's transferred to Aix-en-Provence, the young man provokes a meeting with Cezanne, with whom he will correspond actively up until the latter's death. Beginning in 1903, Charles Camoin exhibits at the Independent's then at the Fall Salon, namely at the 1905 Salon where "Fauvism" breaks out. Quickly recognized, Charles Camoin abandons fauvism in favor of a more gentle painting and avoids the major intellectual and artistic movements of his time such as Dadaism and Cubism. Following the rupture caused by the First World War and after his marriage in 1920, Charles Camoin divides his time between Paris and Saint-Tropez, whose port he loves to paint, simplifying the contours and playing with light. Charles Camoin dies in Paris at the age of 86 but he is buried under his native skies in Marseilles.
— Camoin was born in Marseilles and met Matisse in Gustave Moreau's class at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Matisse and his friends (including Camoin, Henri Manguin, Albert Marquet, and and Georges Rouault), joined by André Derain and Maurice de Vlaminck, two close friends then sharing a studio, and slightly after by Braque, Dufy, and Kees van Dongen, formed the original group mockingly labelled the Fauves (the wild beasts) for their wild, expressionist use of color and their general refusal to paint like anyone else then showing at the salons. Camoin always remained close to Matisse, whose portrait he painted and which is in the permanent collection of the Pompidou Museum in Paris, but he also came to admire Cezanne, Renoir, and Bonnard. His work has been shown widely in France and is in such major collections as the Musee d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris and the Petit Palace (also in Paris) in addition the the Pompidou and many of the French regional museums. In 1955 he was awaarded the Prix du President de la Rupublique at the Biennale of Menton.
— Voiliers à Ploumanach aka Marine (1931, 33x46cm) _ Ce voilier devant l'un des célèbres rochers de granit rose de Ploumanach, appelé en raison de sa forme "le chapeau de Napoléon" a été peint lors du séjour de Charles Camoin chez ses amis Eiffel. Suivant une touche légère et fluide, Camoin joue avec dextérité et liberté des effets colorés et lumineux, animant cette paisible "marine" de quelques taches et coups de pinceau. Elle apparaît plus "méditerranéenne" que "bretonne" et montre que le peintre, profondément marqué par la lumière du midi, n'a pu, à l'occasion de ses trop courts séjours en Bretagne, prendre en compte les caractères particuliers des paysages et de la lumière.
— Cargo à Saint-Tropez (80x122cm) _ Dividing his time between Paris and Provence, namely Saint-Tropez, Charles Camoin paints not only portraits but also views, bouquets, and countless marine landscapes. Nobody could define his interests better than the painter himself. "I still consider myself a Fauve. there are two kinds of colors, real ones and superficial ones. You have to choose. I think you must deal with the real ones and it's what I've done since the outset".
