Edouard Febvre was born in 1885 in France. Febvre is a visual artist known for his city and streets scenes, pieces of the of suburbs under the snow, fairgrounds and Gypsies. As a painter, active in the 20th Century his work sometimes brings back an imaging of a picturesque, desperate and pessimistic scenario, but sometimes we can find some other works by him that glimmers more cheerful when he painted over the butte. Several of the works by the artist have been sold at auction, including: ’Carnival à Paris’ sold at Christie's New York, ‘The House Sale’ in 2007 and more recently ’Rue anime avec chopes et fiacres’ sold at Eric Pillon Encheres, Versailles in 2014, ‘L’accordoniste’ and ‘Paris, Montmartre’ sold at Eric Pillon Encheres, Versailles in 2014.
Febvre remains a painter to be rediscovered, and which deserves a better understanding of his prolific lifetime as being a true impressionistic painter of the early 20th Century. His works have been exhibited in the Salon d'Automne of 1941, in Galerie Roussard and in Workshop at 8 both in Paris. Febvre died in 1967.
