*UK BUYERS WILL PAY AN ADDITIONAL 20% VAT ON TOP OF THE ABOVE PRICE La Rivière (The River) by PAULÉMILE PISSARRO (1884-1972) Oil on canvas 92 x 73 cm (36 1⁄4 x 28 3⁄4 inches) Signed and dated lower left Paulémile Pissarro 1932 Provenance Private collection, London This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued by Lélia Pissarro. Artist biography Paulémile Pissarro, Camille’s youngest son, was born in Eragny in 1884. He was brought up in the artistic environment of the family home there, and, encouraged by his father, began drawing at an early age. Paulémile’s godfather was Claude Monet, who became his teacher and close friend, particularly after Camille’s death in 1903. In 1905, Paulémile exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants for the first time, showing an Impressionist landscape entitled Bords de l’Epte à Eragny. Although his father had supported his desire to be an artist, his mother was eager for him to learn a more practical trade. In 1908, Paulémile put aside his artistic pursuits to work as an automobile mechanic and test-driver, then as a lace and textile designer, allowing him only a little time to paint. While Paulémile was still working at the lace factory, his brother, Lucien, who lived in London, asked him to send over some watercolours, and the sale of these encouraged Paulémile to leave the factory and dedicate himself to painting. By the 1920s, Paulémile had become an established Post-Impressionist artist in his own right, sharing a studio with Kees Van Dongen and spending the summer months escaping from Paris with him and Maurice de Vlaminck. In 1924, Paulémile moved to Lyons-la-Foret, a small town near Eragny, where he painted his surroundings with great pleasure, returning again and again to the placid waters of the River Epte, winding its way among willows, meadows and hills. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, Paulémile reached the peak of his artistic development, arriving at the individual style for which he is best known. In 1930, he visited an area called Swiss Normandy and instantly fell in love with this part of the Calvados region, especially the River Orne that runs through the valley adjacent to the villages of Clécy and le Vey. The combination of blue hills and green meadows, separated by the calm waters of the river, offered Paulémile a new setting for his work. Paulémile moved in 1935 with his second wife, Yvonne Beaupel, to Clécy, where he would remain until his death. In 1967, Paulémile had his first one-man show in the United States at Wally Findlay Galleries in New York. This led to widespread recognition and a degree of professional success that few Pissarro artists have known during their lifetime. Since his death in 1972, Paulémile’s paintings have been exhibited around the world, and interest in his work continues to grow.

  • Printemps
    By Charles Levier
    Located in Costa Mesa, CA
    A beautiful woman sits at an open window, gazing down at a small bird who has landed nearby in this serene portrait by Charles Levier. Warm orange tones are played off their complements in shades of blue, the artist utilizing several different layers of oils to create a subtle and relaxed view of a spring day near the sea. Beyond the window a small chapel sits on a peninsula, surrounded tranquil blue waters. This work, like many of Levier's, belongs to the French figurative movement of the Glorious Thirty (Les Trente Glorieuses) - the golden period of thirty years after WWII which were a time of great hope and prosperity in France. Inspired by Hollywood cinema, Charles Levier sought harmony in composition and purity of color and form. His said that his creations represented "a light and delicate world, of dark and subtle shades and colors." Levier worked in a somewhat abstracted, cubist style. Additionally he often employed the French technique of "cloisonnism" (after the French for "partition"), a style of post-Impressionist painting with bold and flat forms separated by dark contours, also seen in this work. The term was coined by critic Edouard Dujardin on the occasion of the Salon des Indépendants, in March 1888 and was commonly used by artists like Émile Bernard, Louis Anquetin, Paul...
