Biography  
Louis Hayet


Louis Hayet is a French post-impressionist painter, born in Pontoise on August 29, 1864, and died in Cormeilles-en-Parisis on December 27, 1940.

His parents, Calixte Hayet and Léontine Dufour, were very poor. At school, he was shy and reserved but was considered intelligent and gifted. His predisposition for painting appeared in 1876. From 1877 to 1884, he traveled the roads with his father, who was a traveling merchant. He joined the neo-impressionist group, Camille Pissarro, Paul Signac and Georges Seurat. First pointillist, it returned to a more classic way in 1890 and Paul Signac removed all mention of Louis Hayet in the second edition of his work D'Eugène Delacroix to neo-impressionism (the pointillism manifesto).
