Charles Joseph Watelet (Belgian, 1867-1954)

Charles Watelet was a student of J. Portaels and Alfred Stevens. After his debut at the Salon des Artistes Francaise in 1902, when he earned a second class medal, Watelet exhibited frequently; in 1925 he earned a gold medal, and became a non-competing member of the Salon. He was also honored as Chevalier of the Legion d’honneur.

Charles Watelet was particularly drawn to the depiction of women in portraiture, a genre in which he found considerable success.
