Edouard Cortés

Edouard Cortés

1882 - 1969

Edouard Cortés was born in Lagny, France on April 26, 1882. He was the son of Spanish Court artist Antonio Cortés, and the grandson of painter André Cortés. Antonio Cortés left Spain in 1855 to exhibit in World's Fair in France. He decided to stay in France, and he settled in Lagny, in the Normandy region. Antonio and his wife had three children, all of whom Antonio taught to paint; but it was Edouard who showed the most skill and the most passion. Edouard attended private school until age 13, then he left to devote himself to painting. In 1899, at age 16, Edouard Cortés had his first public exhibition at the prestigious Société des Artistes Français. His work was well received by critics and the public. He was quickly established as an artist in Paris. Around 1900, Cortés began painting the urban landscapes that he is best known for. He delighted in painting Paris during different seasons, at different times of day in different weather conditions. He spent the next 69 years traveling between Paris and Lagny. While in Lagny, Cortés would paint landscapes, interior scenes and still-lifes. Cortés was a member of the Union des Beaux-Arts de Lagny, and has had his paintings exhibited in Paris at the Salon d'Autumne, the Salon d'Hiver, the Salon de la Sociéte Nationale de Horticulture and the Salon des Indépendents. The paintings of Cortés are represented in numerous museum, corporate and private collections throughout Europe and North America.
