Portrait of a young redhead


Charles Maurin (1 April 1856 – 22 July 1914) was a French painter, engraver, and an anarchist who practiced a variety of styles. A notable symbolist work of his being Maternity, a study of motherhood. He was a friend of the painter Félix Vallotton.

He was born in Lo Puèi Sailing (Auvergne, Aquitaine). In 1875, he obtained the prize that Crozatier allowed to go to Paris to study Fine Arts and then at the Académie Julian, where he eventually taught. He exhibited at the Salon of French artists and became a member of the Society of French Artists in 1883. Felix Valloton admit the engraving and anarchism. He received the support of Vollard and was a friend of Toulouse-Lautrec—who will make his first individual exhibition with him in 1893—and also of many other artists (Carabén, Aristide Bruant). Inspired by Japanese artists, he revolutionized the technique of etching, but without forgetting the woodcuts. In 1892, he exhibited at the Salon of the Rose-Cross. He collaborated with La Revue Blanche, directed by Fénéon, and Le Temps Nouveaux, Jean Grave. Deeply anti-clerical, was a great admirer of Jules Valles, Kropotkin, Louise Michel, and Flora Tristan. Charles Maurin died on 22 July 1914 in Grasse (Provence, Aquitaine). Is his famous woodcut of Ravachol, with naked torso way of the guillotine.
