Biography of Victor Pierre Huguet

A genre and landscape painter, he studied with Emile Loubon in Marseille and with Fromentin in Paris.

In 1852, aged 17, he travelled to Egypt and Crimea together with Durand-Brager. He was deeply influenced by the sceneries and landscapes he discovered. Those became the source of his inspiration towards orientalist paintings which would soon make him famous.

A few years later, deepening his knowledge of the Middle-East, he discovered Algeria that became his favorite subject: A door in Biskra, Fountain in Bougie, Horses bathing, Caravan in the desert.

From 1859, he exhibited in the Salon in Marseille and Paris  and in the Salon of the French Orientalists Painters from its inauguration in 1893. He was considered among the best orientalist artists from Provence.
