Leon Charles Huber (1858-1928, French)

Portrait en chat du peintre Léon Charles Huber, connu comme Léon Hubert, spécialiste de la représentation de chats domestiques. 1908 by Grun

Portrait of Leon Charles Huber by J.Grun, 1908

Leon Charles Huber (1858-1928, French) was a painter who specialized in animals, in particular cats. Huber was also known for helping the poor by offering food and other services every day from his studio. In addition, Huber tutored many young artists.

Born in Montmartre, Paris, he studied painting at L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts with Jules Grun, who sketched his portrait on the left. He exhibited his works at the Salon of French Artists from 1887.  He won numerous awards for his art, and his works are still popular today and frequently up for auction at Christie’s.

Huber’s cat paintings are reminiscent of many of the 19th century artists such as Julius Adam, Henriette Ronner-Knip, Jules LeRoy and Daniel Merlin, to name just a few. His cats are domestic, cute and mischievous and do not convey any deeper message for the viewer.
