Octave LINET is a French painter born in Bléré (Indre-et-Loire) in September 25, 1870 and died in Paris on November 9, 1962.
Octave Linet exhibited at the Salon de la Nationale des Beaux-Arts for the first time in 1888. He was a founding member of the Salon d'automne and participated in the Salon des indépendants.
Octave LINET attended the Crozant School in 1905. The 1906 Salon exhibited five landscapes from Creuse, including four views of ruins.
He travels mainly in France and Spain.
He painted landscapes of Brittany, Touraine, Creuse, Normandy and the French Riviera. In Paris, he painted in particular the banks of the Seine, views of rooftops and works related to theaters, some of which are preserved in the Carnavalet Museum. In the Oise valley, he stayed in Éragny where he met up with his friend Léon Giran-Max and painted the riverbanks from the loop of Neuville-sur-Oise to Saint-Leu-d'Esserent, street scenes, village scenes and festivals. We also owe him still lifes where he sometimes stages objects from his personal collection of medieval and religious art.
A great collector, he bequeathed to the Tours Museum part of his collection, which included thirty-seven primitives and twelve sculptures from the High Epoch. Fine connoisseur and great scholar, he was the collaborator of the great collector Joseph Spiridon and the intimate of Suzanne Valadon and Utrillo, of Max Jacob and Dufy.
The museums of Pontoise and Carnavalet preserve several of his works.
