ART: French Landscape Artist Paul Madeline
Paul Madeline was a French landscape painter who lived and worked in Paris at a time when both the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist movements were very prominent on the French Art scene.
Paul Madeline studied painting under E. Chaly and became a member of the Societe des Artistes Francais in 1897, the same year he won his first honorable mention.
Three years later, he won another honorable mention when his work was exhibited in the United States.
By 1910, he was a full member of the Salon Nationale des Beaux-Arts. He was known for his French landscape paintings with their sumptuous colors and with loose brushstrokes.
What impressed me most was Paul's use of light and shadow. You can almost feel the heat in some of his works displaying an almost Carribbean sunshine, but it is a sunny part of France.
I hope you have enjoyed
