Eugène Carrière (1849-1906) was a French Symbolist, Fin de siècle artist. His work is best known for its brown monochrome palette. He was a close friend of the sculptor Rodin and his work influenced Matisse and Picasso (some see traces of Carrière’s monochrome style in Picasso’s Blue period).
Eugene Carriere was a prominent, highly regarded portrait painter and one of the foremost lithographers at the end of the 19th century. Greatly influenced by the paintings of Turner and emulating Leonardo DaVinci’s moody chiaroscuro and softened effects in his work, Carriere often depicted images of family and motherhood. Henri Matisse was one of his students.
