Leon Danchin was born in Lille on June 21, 1887. Died on August 4, 1938 in Bergues. He is a French painter, lithographer, engraver and animal sculptor. He is attracted from an early age by drawing and hunting that will become his two passions. After training as a sculptor at two great masters in Lille, he devoted himself more specifically to watercolor. His professional life will be temporarily interrupted by the 1914-1918 war where he will be called. Back to civilian life, the joys of hunting and animal studies punctuate his days.
Well known to the general public all over the world for his hunting engravings
He studied sculpture at L’Ecole des Beaux Art in Paris and was accepted by the Salon des Artists from the age of sixteen.
Without abandoning his sculpture, he devoted himself to drawing, watercolours and engraving. His specific interest developed towards country scenes with particular attention to dogs. Danchin’s work is widely recognized as some of the finest when it comes to the canine species. He specialized in sporting dogs and his images grace some of the most prestigious homes in the world. Danchin’s fine eye for detail and expression is evident in all of his work.
Besides painting and sculpting he produced about one hundred engravings and lithographs, which were immediately successful in the art world. Leon Danchin died at the beginning of the Second World War in Bergues, where he is now buried.
