Mozin Charles-Louis (1806 - 1862)
A famous French landscape and seascape painter and lithographer. Born in Paris. He studied at the workshop of O.-K. Leprince. In 1825 he settled in Normandy and opened a studio in Trouville - a small fishing village, which later became a real Mecca for the French landscape painters. He gained wide popularity due to his early works depicting the French fleet of ships during battles or storms. Since 1824 he annually exhibited at the Paris Salon. His works differ by their bright author's style, which combines the best traditions of Dutch marines of the XVIIth century. The contribution of the artist into the development of landscape painting is also a significant influence, which he had on his younger contemporary, the singer of the coast of Normandy, E. Boudin and on the French Impressionists. His works are presented in the art museum in Amiens, Baltimore, Le Havre, Paris, Rouen, Sheverni, Versailles, Toulouse, Trouville.
