Charles Brouty Art

1892-1984

Charles Brouty, painter, journalist and draftsman, was born prematurely in 1892 in the French territorial waters off of Bastia, Corsica. Settled contentedly in French Algeria from 1912–63 the year in which he believes he was expelled - Charles Brouty sings his artistic songs of the country he so loved in its humblest and most magical manifestations. Official painter of the mission Ténéré-Berliet (Algiers-Fort-Lamy), decorator of the pavilion of Algeria at the international fairs of Paris and Brussels, Charles Brouty was awarded the following prizes: Grand Prix of Algeria and the Gold Medal of French Orientalist painters. Brouty was also awarded a residence in Casa de Velázquez, a French school in Spain modeled on the Villa Médicis in Rome. Also, renowned as the illustrator of approximately twenty books on Algeria and its surrounding regions, he intended these drawings and paintings, better than any written documentation, to remain as a pictorial legacy of what life was like for the French Pied-Noirs who cherished their lives in colonial Algeria.
