Born in France, Charlot studied at Lycee Condorcet and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. After moving he engrossed himself in the study of Mayan Art which became a powerful force in the creation of his lithographs, drypoints, and woodcuts. His dynamic sculptured style and sense of design presented monumental images which were published by printers he worked closely with, Lawrence Barrett, Albert Carman, and Lynton Kistler. While teaching in various colleges and universities throughout the United States he received a Guggenheim Fellowship to continue working in Mexico where he produced a portfolio of color lithographs. On his return to the United States he was appointed head of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Charlot also produced color illustrations for The Limited Editions Club publications of Prosper Merimee's, Carmen and Thornton Wilder's , The Bridge of San Luis Rey. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has the largest museum collection of Charlot's prints and the private collection of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Lord, star of the television series, "Hawaii Five-O," was donated to the Smithsonian Institution's Division of Graphic Arts. Charlot's last major project was a portfolio showing Melanesian culture, Kei Viti,1978, completed just before his death in Honolulu.
