Literature: Bertolio Jean Carlo, Jean Crotti, Catalogue raisonné, Cinq continents, Paris, 2007, p. 139 (illustrated)

Jean Crotti was born in Bulle, Switerzland. His first formal artistic education was to occur within the walls of the Munich School of Decorative of Art in 1898 before he moved to Paris in 1901 to attend the famed Académie Julian. His tutelage at the Académie did not last and he abandoned his studies there in 1902. The reasoning for this departure was largely due to Crotti becoming disenfranchised by the rigours of painting within a controlled academic environment. The period that was to follow was largely dominated by Crotti painting in isolation and his output was characterised by its Primitivist and Fauvist aesthetics. In 1907, Crotti started exhibiting his works regularly within major public exhibitions, such as the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d’Automne.
