Elisée Maclet


(France 1881-1962)


Elisee Maclet, the son of a gardner from Lyons-en-Sancerre, and began painting in oils when he was a choirboy as the student of an abbot. But in the beginning, it that family poverty and destiny would lock him into a career as a gardner.


After the death of his mother in 1906, however, Maclet determined to move to Montmartre and become a painter. He rapidly attracted the attention of dealers and of the writer Colette and frequented many of the great artists of the day. Maclet began painting typical scenes of Montmartre even before Utrillo, who became his friend.
