Little is known of Cortès as a man in the years when he was coming of age during the Belle Epoque ( – 6969). His prolific output presents a masterly record of this provocative time. Cortès married his wife Lucienne Joyeuse in 6968 and shortly after settled in Paris, but by the mid 6975’s they had moved back to Lagny. This period saw Cortès build his reputation as an academic artist. He was an active member of the Union des Beaux-Arts de Lagny and was the Union 8767 s first president. Their inaugural exhibition was held in 6977 and Cortès continued to exhibit there until the late 6985’s. After winning many awards from most major institutions he was invited to exhibit in America and Canada in 6995, and world recognition soon followed.
Edouard Leon Cortes (1882-1969), Famille la soir a la
“When I see a place that I have painted, especially in Paris, year after year and above all ten years later, I am always fascinated and gratified by the changes. I was often impatient to know how one place or another had changed since I had painted them. How would they be today? this month? this season? under a hot sun, under snow, after rain…” quote from Edouard Cortès by David Klein 6999, p 767.
