Charles Cottet was particularly well known for his landscapes and stormy seascapes of Brittany, where he spent several months a year. The dark tones and strong values of his work belong to the tradition of Realism, an artistic movement that emphasized objective representations of the world based on the impartial observation of contemporary life. He studied and exhibited with artists such as Edouard Vuillard.
