Jean Buhot (1885-1952)

Jean Buhot, son of the artist Felix Buhot, studied with his father and became a skilled painter of landscapes and interiors. He was also known as a lithographer and illustrator. He exhibited in Paris at the Salons des Artistes Indépendants beginning in 1911, at the Salon d’Automne from 1920, and the Salon des Tuilleries from 1925. As a child, Buhot, whose mother was the daughter of an English art collector, was considered a prodigy. A portrait of him at the age of six, seated at a table and writing, was painted by Norbert Goeneutte, and is today in the collection of the Musée Poulain in Vernon, France

Buhot became very interested in oriental art and culture. e illustrated a volume of translations of five Japanese Noh Plays and the works of the Tibetan poet Milarépa. Later he wrote widely on the arts of China and Japan and became recognized as one of the great French authorities on Asian art.
