Marcel Emile Cailliet Art

French, 1914-2007

Marcel Emile Cailliet emigrated from Dijon, France to New York in 1917, where he first studied at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. Upon the invitation of his uncle, the artist Emile Cailliet, Marcel moved to Los Angeles in 1938 to study with Millard Sheets at Claremont College. He earned his BA and MFA degrees at the University of Southern California and subsequently continued his art studies at the Chouinard Art School. A member of the California Watercolor Society and Laguna Beach Art Association, Cailiet exhibited in the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition and the Oakland Art Gallery (1939). Beginning at the outbreak of war, he was commissioned as an ensign and sent to Camp Perry, Virginia, then Washington, D.C., then to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii where he served for seven years, ending at the Navy Pacific University as an instructor, and with the rank of lieutenant. Cailliet then moved to Oahu, Hawaii, where he continued to paint, teach and exhibit with success.
