Charles Camoin was born in Marseille on 23 September, 1879. He studied under Gustave Moreau at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he met Henri Manguin, Albert Marquet, Henri Matisse, Jean Puy and Georges Rouault – the artists who would later make up the nucleus of the so-called ‘Fauves’ (‘Wild Beasts’). Camoin worked in a variety of genres, including landscape, portraiture, still life, the nude, and seascapes, and was considered a practitioner of both the Post-Impressionist and the Fauvist styles. His portrait of his close friend Henri Matisse is in the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
