About the artist
Charles Hoguet was born on 21 November 1821 in Berlin. He began his studies with Wilhelm August Kraus and decided to go to Paris in 1839 to study. As Eugène Isabey and Eugène Cicéri’s student, he improved his skill considerably while developing his unique technique. Hoguet exhibited some of his work in Paris and was highly acclaimed. Unfortunately, some German critics were not impressed with his work, classifying him as a French school artist.
Hoguet travelled around Europe before settling in Berlin in 1948.
He lived and worked in Berlin producing a lifetime total of 423 oil paintings, according to his records, and exhibited regularly at academic art exhibitions. He became a member of the Academy in 1869.
Charles Hoguet died on 4 August 1870 in Berlin.
