Works & Achievements: Louis Anquetin is most famous for developing a painting style called 'Cloisonnisme'.
Louis Anquetin was regarded as the most promising artist of the 19th century and he was a major influence on other artists of his time and later generations. In Paris, he was a part of a group of artists that included stalwarts like Vincent van Gough, Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Emile Bernard and George Seurat. His early work was heavily influenced by 'Impressionism' but later, along with Bernard, developed a new method of painting called 'Cloisonnisme' that quickly gained him the reputation of an innovator in the Paris art scene. Anquetin never stayed put with any style and throughout his career, he experimented with different styles. This may partly be due to his innovative nature and restless spirit. During his later life, he was largely out of the art scene and after his death, he was nearly forgotten. However, in recent years his works have seen an uprise in interest, particularly his paintings of the mysterious women of the night, a subject that he worked on when he was in Rome. You can know more on this brilliant artist in the biography given below.
In 1906, when he was about 45 years old, Louis married Berthe Coquinot, who was the widow of an officer. After marriage, the couple settled in Vine Street, in a magnificent house designed by Charles Blanche. During this time, he also started teaching painting techniques to many students. He also gave lectures at the People’s University and in 1914, he organized monthly debates at the restaurant La Perouse. During this time, he guided two of his students, Jacques Maroger and Camille Versini in their research on different varnishes and painting techniques along with the chemist Marc Havel. His book “Rubens” was published in 1924. Louis passed away in August 1932. By this time, he was almost forgotten. A few months before his death, his friend, Emile Bernard, met him and created his portrait, which was signed “Louis Anquetin, a token of my deepest admiration”.
