Man full of "joie de vivre", that Apollinaire dubbed "the voluptuous painter", Henri Charles Manguin is born in Paris in 1874. At twenty, he is a pupil of Gustave Moreau at the Workshop of the School of Fine Arts in Paris. Matisse, Rouault, and Marquet are also there. Like many, he exhibits the first time at the Salon of Independents in 1902. He becomes Associate of the Autumn Salon to which he remains faithful throughout his life as a painter.

In 1905, one can see in the hall of the Autumn Salon his painting "La Sieste" which is called in derision “La cage aux fauves” (Fawn cage).

Manguin discovers southern France, Provence and Saint-Tropez (he stays with Paul Signac). The man, full of "joie de vivre", is attracted by the light, becomes enthusiasm for landscapes, and buys a house there in 1920. He works in Paris in 1908 at the Ranson Academy where he finds among other things Albert Marquet. He is in search of scenery, he deals mainly with watercolors, and travels constantly in France (Provence, Brittany, Pays of Loire, etc.) and occasionally abroad (Switzerland, Italy).

Fleeing the war, he takes a workshop in Avignon in 1940; he holds workshops in which he returns regularly, and then finally leaves definitively Paris for Saint-Tropez where he disappears in 1949.

Manguin paints mostly female figures, sleepers, bathers, nudes; the south being always is favorite subject. His beginnings are marked by the discovery of Impressionism, the Nabis and Cézanne. He belongs naturally to the Fauvism movement since the exaltation of the colors corresponded to his own temperament. Manguin's work is characterized by a profound desire inhabited by the artist to share his own emotions, focusing mainly in the colors for the happiness that one experiences in seeing them.
