/// Biography of Eugène-Louis VÉDER ///

Inspired by Jean-François Raffaëlli, he began his artistic career shortly before the First World War, exhibiting at the Salon des Indépendants of 1912 watercolors noticed by the art dealer Durant-Ruel.
In the 1920s, his favorite subject remained Paris, where he produced many enhanced engravings. He sets up his studio on the Place de l'Estrapade.
The publisher Albert Morancé published some of his works in the famous review Byblis. In 1928, he produced a series of 50 plates on the popular Parisian districts that the National Museums acquired in 1930 for the chalcography of the Louvre.
In 1923, Jean Robiquet, curator of the Carnavalet museum, wrote about him: “Do not ask him where he came from, nor where he learned to look, to sketch and to smell. His work indicates it quite clearly, the small open-air markets, the stalls of the rue St-Jacques, the slopes of the rare grass of the fortifications, the hidden corners of old Montmartre, such were his first fields of observation, his first painter's workshops. Preserved from any school influence, he had no other teacher than Paris, no teaching other than the daily spectacle of our streets and suburbs, other models than passers-by. And this is undoubtedly the secret of such an original talent, of a work where the smallest detail takes on an accent of truth. »Source wikipedia.
