Evariste was a French painter, born into a family of lawyers who (interestingly enough) encouraged his art and sent him to Paris when he was 18 so he could learn from well known sculptors & painters of the time.
This is a bright artist who spent much of his time focusing on the darker themes of life. Much of his work depicts struggle, battle and turmoil, although his equine pieces tend to be some of his more whimsical work.
In stark contrast to the darkness of the themes is the the loving attention to detail that goes into each of his pieces.

My artist series is growing on a weekly basis & I think it is interesting to present artists throughout history alongside the interviews with contemporary artists. Be sure to check out some horses of other well-known artists as well.
