Pierre-Auguste Cot (1837-1883)
French painter Pierre-August Cot painted in the Academic Classic style mythological subjects and portraits. Cot began his studies at L cole des Beaux-Arts in sculpting and painting. He debuted at the 1863 Paris Salon with paintings of historical scenes, genre and allegorical subjects. Cot's genre paintings and portraits were very popular among Paris aristocratic class and he became very successful. Cot's paintings, such as The Storm and Le Printemps, possess strength mixed with grace, although these figurative works are rarer than his portrait oeuvre.
