Born in 1834 in Paris. Mascart was a student of the much-traveled naval painter Jean-Baptiste Henri Durand-Brager (1814-1879), who was best known in life for his marines with warships.
Mascart focused on the realistic cityscape. Especially Paris and the periphery were discussed in his oeuvre. He can be considered one of the pioneers of what has come to be called "Montmartre painters", with views of Montmartre , the Moulin Rouge , Place Pigalle , et cetera. Mascart also painted cityscapes in other places, including in: Amsterdam (The Montelbaanstoren ), Como , Ghent , Ostend and the windmills of Kinderdijk .
