Urbain Huchet was born in Rennes, France on April 28, 1930. After studying law and owning a textile factory for four years, he decided in 1960 to devote himself entirely to painting. Mr. Huchet spent his first three years as an artist in Port-Aven, following in the footsteps of Gaugin and Emile Bernard, both of whom influenced him a great deal. He does many paintings of the landscape and the typical people of this region. His love of the Brittany coast and the sea can always be seen in his work.
After moving to Paris in 1963, he spent time painting and writing in Europe, the Middle East and South America, where his inspiration from the markets, peoples and landscapes have become very well known. He made 14 trips of more than 4 months each, from Mexico to Brazil, via Peru, Central America and the Caribbean islands. A luxurious portfolio of lithographs of Egypt shows his love of that country.
Huchet has held exhibitions throughout the world, however Paris is where his largest number of works have been produced. At least 300 editions of lithographs have been printed of his works, all produced by the artist himself in different workshops in Paris and Cannes.
