As Eugene was very shy he did not so much want to be in photos,
which at the time were something new and a little unusual ...
this might be the reason
why he is not in the above picture.
Vincent van Gogh is not in any Atelier Cormon photo either.
We added a photo of Eugène
and a portrait von Vincent painted by Henri Toulouse Lautrec.
During these years Eugene Boch lived rue Ganneron in the 18th arrondissement of Paris,
walking distance to 54 rue Lepic (home of Theo van Gogh and also Vincent van Gogh)
and to 10 rue Constance (atelier Corman)
Years later in 1910 Eugene erected the Villa La Grimpette in Moython
where many of his art student friends went to visit him.
Eugene was never short of money
as he was receiving dividends from the Ceramic activities
Boch Freres and Villeroy & Boch.
Also we was not living a "bling bling" lifestyle.
He enjoyed helping his artist friends in difficulties
whenever they asked him
for some support
... he bought their paintings.
over the years
an impressive collection came together ...
what happened to the beautiful
Villa La Grimpette ?
