Louis Charlot was admitted to the Paris School of Fine Arts in the atelier of Léon Bonnat in 1901. In 1902, he exhibited at the Salon des artistes Français, where he was noticed by G Lecomte, who later counted him among the masters of French realism. Until the First World War, he experienced poverty, but continued to paint, multiplying exhibitions in Paris. His Paysans attablés (1913) enthused G Apollinaire.

It was not until 1920 that he finally knew the knew recognition with a great exhibition at the Georges Petit Gallery, whose criticism sent out an echo. A member of the Autumn Show, he also appeared at the Salon des Tuileries from 1927 to 1943. His work reserves a special place for the landscapes and human types of his native Morvan. After the war, he retired to Uchon, where he died in 1951.
