Born in Dijon in 1855, Paul Chocarne-Moreau went to the School of Fine Arts in Paris, where he was a pupil of Tony Robert-Fleury and William Bouguereau. His debut at the French Artists Salon was in 1882 and he exhibited quite regularly from that date.

Chocarne-Moreau was specialized in genre painting. He used to paint scenes of Parisian life whose heroes are usually young boys from poor backgrounds (young apprentice pastry cooks, chimney sweeps, altar boys, school children) engaged in all sorts of pranks.

Witness of his time, he painted works such as Sur la barricade (On the Barricade) he exhibited in 1909 at the Salon.
