Clément Quinton (or Charles-Henri)

French Painter & Engraver
Born 1851

Pâturage au bord de la mer,
Oil on canvas

Pupil of Saurfelt, he starts exhibiting at the Salon in 1879 with Pâturage à Bonneuil and Intérieur de bergerie.

He always liked representing rustic scenes (pastures, return from the fields, harnessing of horses) observed in Limousin, Auvergne, the Landes, Brittany, that he enlivens with the presence of ploughmen, shepherds and herds. These landscapes, started as draft, were finished in his studio of Saint-Maur (next to Paris)

Quinton painted some marines and some perfect landscapes for which he knew how to accentuate in a very personal way the soberness. Awarded a medal in 1890 and 1892, he exposes again in 1907, year where he gets a mention as engraver.

One can see Quinton's paintings in the Museums of Louviers, Amiens, the Puy and Chaux-de-Fonds (Switzerland).
