Charles Léandre

Charles Léandre (1862-1934) was a French artist best known for his comic drawings and caricatures.

When he drew caricatures, he knew just what features to exaggerate, and how much to exaggerate them to convey the character.

But he was much more than a caricaturist, painting scenes that were true to nature. This one is in pastel.

He often portrayed children and women, doing so with remarkable sympathy.
