D’Espagnat was a Post-Impressionist painter, muralist, illustrator, and theater designer. After moving to Paris at the age of 18 to study painting, he became involved with prominent Impressionist painters of the time, exhibiting his work at the Salon des Refusés and the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. d’Espagnat’s depicted everyday Parisian life, female figures, landscapes, and still lifes, in a painterly style of additive brushstrokes with a unique treatment of color, resembling the Fauves. He was influential in the art circles of his time—notably with Henri Matisse (French, 1869-1954), Paul Gauguin (French, 1848-1903), Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973), Camille Pissaro (French, 1831–1903), and Marc Chagall (French/Russian, 1887–1985)—in addition to being close to a number of prominent musicians, such as Albert Roussel.
