Stéphane Gilbert Fernand Caracotchian, known as Stéphane Cara, was a French post-impressionist painter. Of Armenian origin, he was born in Châtenois (Alsace) on July 3, 1901. The son of a prestigious doctor, his family moved to Paris in 1919. He worked for many years as a wine merchant and as an agent for the “Société Anonyme fluviale Trans-Cam” in Bordeaux, before completely giving himself over to painting. He exhibited several landscapes at the Salon des Indépendants Bordelais in 1947.

He was the author of a book entitled (in French) “Painting in a Nutshell: or How to Judge a Painting” published in 1959. His sister Anita was the first woman oceanographer in the world.

Stéphane Cara died in Nice (Provence) on May 16, 1962, at the age of 60.
