Paul Cauchie studied at the illustrious I'Ecole des Arts institute in Belgium. The veteran artist discovered his talent at a tender age and while still studying, he established a fresco enterprise which became very successful. In his later career, he engaged in the uncharacteristic art of the sgraffites. The technique was very peculiar for color drawing around Belgium at the time. His artistic skills extended to architectural designs, an area he exceedingly excelled.
