Louis-Marie Désiré-Lucas

Louis-Marie Désiré-Lucas (1869 - 1949) was a French painter and lithographer.
His first work is La Jeune Ouessantine (1885). In 1889, he obtained a grant from the city of Brest that allowed him to enter the Académie Julian in Paris, where he was a student of William Bouguereau, Tony Robert-Fleury and Jules Joseph Lefebvre. Later on, he was admitted to the School of Fine Arts in Paris. He debuted at the Salon des Artistes French in 1893 with female portraits.
Désiré-Lucas is influenced by the paintings of Paul Cézanne. In 1920, he began working on the coast and landscapes on the Côte d'Azur, Spain, Italy and Belle-Ile-en-Mer. 
In August 1922, he stayed in Ouessant with his pupil (and from 1942 wife) Marie Réol.
