Louis Robert Pradel Biography

Louis Robert Pradel




Very little biographical information is found on the painter and printmaker Louis Robert Pradel, aside from his nationality and birth year (French, 1888). It appears that his focus was the animal kingdom, especially exotic cats and birds, and he was active until around 1930, according to auction records. His keen eye for rendering, suggesting professional schooling or other training in the arts, combined with the lack of information on his life makes the mystery that much more intriguing.
