Gustave POETZSCH (Swiss, 1870-1950) was born in Neuchâtel in Switzerland. He came to Paris in 1892 and enrolled at the School of Fine Arts. He then studied in the workshops of Luc Olivier Merson and Gustave Moreau with the likes of Henri Matisse, Charles Camoin and Paul de Frick.
He painted scenes of the Belle Epoque in Paris, many pretty ladies drinking absinthe in bars that could well have been frequented by the likes of Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec.
From 1895, he exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Indépendants, the Salon des Artistes Français and the Salon held by the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. In particular, he painted landscapes around Velay.
