Edouard-Emmanuel-Charles Pannetier, Provençal and Orientalist painter, was born on November 6, 1884 in Clermont-Ferrand (Auvergne). He began his artistic studies at the École des Beaux-Arts in his home town and later at the École des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Trained as a drawing teacher, he worked for a few years in Algeria at the Lamoricière Lyceum in Oran between 1910 and 1920. Back in France, he worked as a drawing teacher at the Lycée d'Aix-en-Provence around 1930. He painted many landscapes and genre scenes from Algeria and Provence. He also illustrated several literary works, among them the novel "Atala" by Chateaubriand in its 1946 edition. Pannetier died in Rueil-Malmaison, near Paris, on October 14, 1965, at the age of 80.
