Charles Alexandre Picart Le Doux was born on July 12, 1881 in Paris. Student at the Académie Julian then at the Beaux-Arts in Paris until 1902, he first lived in Montmartre and frequented Le Lapin Agile where he met Suzanne Valadon and her son Maurice Utrillo (two years old younger) and creates unshakeable friendships with René Arcos, Charles Vildrac, Georges Duhamel, Jules Romains with the group of the Abbaye in Créteil. From 1904, he exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in which he became a member, then at the Salon des Indépendants. He exhibited at the Charles Vildrac gallery and participated with Jules Romains and their friends in the election of the "prince of thinkers", namely Jean-Pierre Brisset, whose portrait he will execute. In 1910, the Biot gallery devoted his first major solo exhibition to him. That same year, he was received at the National Society of Fine Arts. The First World War plunges him, as a nurse, closer to the horror. He will come out broken and definitively won over to theses and pacifist movements to which he will always have his support. After the armistice and a period of depression, he threw himself deeply into the work trying to "forget the technique" for the benefit of the model. In 1921, he met Aristide Maillol with whom he found a faithful friendship of which the painter still testifies some time before his death. From 1923, he exhibited at the Salon des Tuileries then at the Charpentier and Drouant-David galleries in Paris as well as in San Francisco, New York, Rio de Janeiro, London (Ohana gallery), Berlin and Munich. In 1934-1935 he left Montmartre to occupy a studio 40, rue Boissonade in Montparnasse. The artist creates a decorative set for the Normandy liner. The national museums show many paintings his. A great gold medal at the 1937 World Fair, Charles Picart Le Doux was in charge of decorating the Lycée Hélène-Boucher in Paris. In 1940, installed in Touraine, first at Jules Romains in Saint Avertin, then in Tours, the painter decorates the prefecture and produces many paintings on the theme of Touraine de Balzac (castle of Saché). During this period he produced a hundred portraits. Returning to Paris in 1945, he again became a professor at the Académie Colarossi and at that of the Grande Chaumière, where he had taught since 1927. Charles Picart Le Doux carried out a decoration for the town hall of the 14th arrondissement of Paris. Numerous exhibitions are dedicated to the painter in Amiens, Angers, Caen, Moulins, Rouen, Saint-Nazaire, the museums of Metz and Nancy, San Francisco, Oslo ... The Mariac gallery organized his last exhibition in 1959. Manly painter, powerful in his landscapes but also sensual in his nudes and deep in his portraits, Charles Picart Le Doux was, as Jules Romains wrote, the last true impressionist, comparable to Renoir in research, until the end of his life from the perfection of his art. The artist was never part of the Impressionist movement, which ended at birth. He is the father of the painter Yves Picart Le Doux, of the cardboard painter Jean Picart Le Doux and of Jacqueline Picart Le Doux. He had a studio 13, rue Paul-Féval in Paris.

  • La Toilette - Post-Impressionist Nude Oil Painting by Georges D'Espagnat
    By Georges d'Espagnat
    Located in Marlow, Buckinghamshire
    Signed oil on original canvas nude circa 1914 by French post impressionist painter Georges D'espagnat. The work depict a nude woman standing beside a wash basin in a boudoir. Signature: Signed lower right Dimensions: Framed: 45"x34" Unframed: 37"x26" Provenance: Private collection - Netherlands From the beginning of his career, it was a constant concern of Georges d'Espagnet to assert his originality. His studies at the École des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, did not last very long, for he wanted immediate independence and decided to follow courses in the private academies of Montparnasse. In about 1900, he became acquainted with Maurice Denis, Bonnard and Vuillard, and his collaboration with Denis led to a renewal of religious art in France. In 1903, d'Espagnet was one of the founders of the Salon d'Automne, and was appointed professor in charge of studios at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 1934. He illustrated a number of books: Rémy de Gourmont's Evil Prayers ( Oraisons mauvaises) (1896), The Saints of Paradise ( Les Saintes du paradis) (1898), Simone (1907), Sistine ( Sixtine) (1922); Alphonse Daudet's The Immortal ( L'Immortel) (1930); André Gide's The Pastoral Symphony ( La Symphonie pastorale); Francis Jammes' Clearings in the Sky ( Chairières dans le ciel) (1948). D'Espagnet belongs to the group of artists who made the Courrier Français so successful. The drawings of his which are published in it are strongly expressive and some bear comparison with the designs of the great Renaissance masters. He also contributed to L'Image. He often placed cheerful nudes in a landscape, reminding us that, though he moved away from the Fauves, he retained their freedom of colour and arabesque. He painted many portraits, including those of Albert André, André Barbier, Victor Boucher, Déodat de Séverac, Albert Marque, André Marty and Albert Roussel. He also painted mural decorations, including a wall for the Palais de la Découverte (1937), the ceiling of the Victor Hugo Room in the Palais du Luxembourg (1939), a decorative panel for the Palais de Justice, Toulouse (1941) and interior decorations for private houses. His landscapes are Impressionist in inspiration, and work for a certain sobriety, an intimacy, both in their composition - one, two or three sketched figures and large open spaces - and in the choice of colours and treatment with the special hazy brushstroke that marks his style. D'Espagnet took part in a number of annual Parisian exhibitions, including the Salon des Indépendants, the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, the Salon d'Automne (from 1903 to 1949, except in special circumstances), the Salon de la Libre Ésthétique, Brussels (1899, 1901), the Berlin Secessionists (1940). He also exhibited at the first Salon de la Société de la Gravure sur Bois. Among other exhibitions were 1912, A Century of French Art ( Centenaire de l'art français), St Petersburg; 1916, Kunstverein, Winterthur; 1918, 1926, Galerie M. Bertheim, Paris; 1930, Contemporary French Art...
