Charles Huard (1874-1965) was a well-known French lithographer, etcher and illustrator. His first published prints date from the turn of the century and from that time until the beginning of the First World War most of his fine etchings and lithographs concentrated upon views of cities and towns in both France and Germany. During the First World War (1914-1918) Charles Huard served as an artist for the French government. The etchings and lithographs he made of French military life within the war zones provide an important and lasting record of these momentous times.
