Oil painting -> List of Painters -> Adolphe-Leon Willette

Early Days:

Willette was born in Chalons-sur-Marne.

He studied for four years at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Cabanel, training which gave him a unique position among the graphic humorists of France. Whether comedy or tragedy, dainty triviality or political satire, his work is instinct with the profound sincerity of the artist. He set Pierrot upon a lofty pedestal among the imaginary heroes of France, and established Mimi Pinson, frail, lovable, and essentially good-hearted, in the affections of the nation.
