This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Garabed Atamian (1872-1947) was born in Constantinople. When he was 13, he was sent to Venice to study at an Armenian high school run by the Mekhitarist priests of San Lazarro Monastery.
He showed great interest in painting, thus the school administrators had him enroll in the studio run by the teachers Paoletti and Tagliapietra, with whom he studied until 1894.
Home again in Constantinople, Atamian was hired as a designer in a ceramics studio belonging to the court of the sultan Abd-ul-Hamid, which he left two years later because of the persecution of his people (the Armenians) ordered by the sultan. With great difficulty, he was finally able to flee to Paris in 1897-----where he set up his permanent residence.
At first, he earned the bulk of his living from his illustrations. He also constructed stage sets for the theater.
Later in his career, he dedicated himself exclusively to painting. The first time Atamian entered a piece in an exhibition was in 1903 at the Autumn Salon. He then took part over the next 40 years in the Salons of the National Society of Fine Arts of which he was a member; over the next 12 years, in those held by the Society of Independent Artists; in the Meudon Salon in 1945; in exhibitions of the Armenian Artists' Association ("ANI"), etc.
He organized private shows as well: at Allard's in 1921; Georges Petit's in 1923 and 1927; Simonson's in 1928; Schusterman's in 1934; Rosenthal's in 1936; etc.
He also exhibited frequently in shows in the rest of France,  and abroad in Brussels, Buenos Aires, Japan, Canada, Venezuela, etc.
The Luxembourg Museum, the Petit Palais, and the Army Museum in Paris, as well as museums in Calais, Troyes, Switzerland and Belgium own his works, among others.
