The painter was born in Langres, a town in the east part of France.
He began his studies in an evening school of his hometown. As far as he can remember, Hervé always wanted to become a talented artist and thus to be able to express through color the beauty of everything he sees. He came to Paris where he first continued his studies at the’ School of Decorative Arts’ and then at the ‘Fine Arts School’.
He exhibited his works for the first time at the Salon of French Artists in 1910. He was one of the most important members of this group. Obtaining his teaching diploma, he started teaching. From 1911 to 1943 he taught painting to many generations of young artists. In 1914 he received a first silver medal from the association of French Artists.
Hervé is both a painter of daily country themes in which there are characters at their daily tasks, and a painter of Parisian scenes. He interprets his scenes with sensibility, putting all his heart into his work. All his artistic sensitivity is achieved by incredible strokes of light and color. Paris as seen by Hervé is a city of poetry. The painter represents the purest tradition of French Art.
His work is part of many museums in France:
Petit Palais in Pads, Museum in Langres, Troues I Dijon, Chicago Museum and Museum in Casablanca.
