Paul-Charles Chocarne-Moreau was from Dijon, France. He studied at the School of Fine Arts in Paris then was a student of Tony Robert-Fleury then William Bouguereau. He exhibited regularly at the Salon of French Artist after 1882-1883. The artist is known for his small genre scenes illustrating Parisian life with young boys such as choir singers and baker trainees in amusing and playful situations. He sort of serves as a special witness of an era with a humorous touch.
