Auguste M. Lauzet was a painter and lithographer.
He was a friend of the painter Puvis de Chavannes. JW was among the many artists asked to contribute work for a sale held on his behalf in May 1895. Lauzet's health was precarious; he lived with his partner, Jeanne Jacquemin, who helped to support him when he was ill. He died three years later, in 1898.
