Victor Cherbuliez (1829 – 1899) was a French novelist and author born in Geneva, Switzerland. Cherbuliez was a prolific and successful writer of fiction. His first book, titled Un Cheval de Phidias, is a romantic study of art in the golden age of Athens. He went on to produce a series of novels. His books are distinguished by a freshness and honesty, fortified by cosmopolitan knowledge and lightened by unobtrusive humor, which accounts for their wide popularity in many countries besides his own.
Quotes by Victor Cherbuliez…
