Eugène Corneau (Vouzeron, 1894 – Pontaubert, 1976) was a French painter, artist, and engraver. From 1901, he lived in Paris, and he regularly exhibited at the Salon d’Automne, where, in 1953, he became one of its members. From 1923, he also exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries. In 1925, he obtained a scholarship and, from 1925 to 1926, he studied at Algeri and travelled along North Africa. When he went back to France, he moved to Pontaubert, where he lived until his death. From 1941 to 1944, he travelled along Berry in France. He exhibited for the first time in 1918 in Paris. He decorated the Berry-Nivernais Pavilion for the Universal Exposition. In 1940, he exhibited at the Venice Biennal; he exhibited also in Bruxelles (1925, 1928), in Alger (1927), New York (1928, 1938), Harleem (1931) and Tunis (1943). An important retrospective on his work took place in 1975 in Saint-Jean-de-Monts (Vandée). From 1953 to 1962, he taught engraving art at the National School of Fine Arts of Algeri and became the vice-president of the Society of French Painters and Engravers. He illustrated several artworks, such as Le songe de Vaux by La Fontaine and Typhon by Conrad. In his life, he realized several artworks representing Breton and Provençal landscapes, old streets of French villages, and harbours of the Atlantic Ocean.
