A really beautiful example of Post-Impressionist painting; the picture space filled with light and wonderfully free brushwork. A most attractive rustic image presented in very good original condition.


Post-impressionist painter, Paul Madeline studied Fine Arts at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.


He founded ‘La Société Moderne’ alongside painters Lebasque, Raffaelli, Aman and Chabas. Madeline mostly painted landscapes throughout France especially of the regions La Creuse and Brittany. His paintings show remarkable light and use of colours. It is only in his latest paintings that he introduces some figures in regional costumes, especially from Brittany. He died in Paris in 1920 and few years later, in 1926, The Salon des Indépendants devoted a retrospective to him.
