Born in Rouen in 1861, from a family of textile manufacturers, he broke with the family tradition and settled at a very young age in Paris, where he began making art as part of the entourage of Puvis de Chavannes and Raphaël Collin.
At the age of 21, he enrolled at the School of Fine Arts, in Cormon's studio. His own studio was first located in Paris, on Rue du Val-de-Grâce, then on Rue Cardinet and, in 1908, Boulevard Gouvion-Saint-Cyr.
His first engraving was a drypoint from 1882.
He visited the south of France, Brittany, and Venice, but most of his inspiration came from the landscapes of Ile-de-France and Normandy.
He met Louis Barthou who became one of his collectors.
