Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg is the son of the Austrian painter Karl Joseph Kuwasseg, with whom he takes his first steps as an artist.
A student of Jean-Baptiste Durand-Bragger and Eugène Isabey, Charles E. Kuwasseg abandoned painting for a time to become a sailor. He specialized in landscapes, in the tradition of the Barbizon School. Kuwasseg's favorite subjects were the ports of Brittany and Normandy, as well as those of the North Sea and the Alpine villages. He collaborated with Théophile Poilpot on various series of paintings.
From 1855 Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon where he received numerous awards. He then became an art teacher, with Emile Clarel as his student. Mastering to perfection the art of contrast and showing exceptional finesse, Charles E. Kuwasseg was one of the most admired painters of the 19th century.
Some of Charles Kuwasseg's works (oils on canvas or panels) can be seen in the Rouen and Rennes Fine Arts Museums as well as in the Maltwood Art Museum of the University of Victoria (Canada).
