About

French mid century still life, oil on canvas, showing chanterelle mushrooms and the delights of an autumn harvest by Claude Le Baube. Signed to the front in period frame. Le Baube's works consist of still-lifes blended with eccentric imagery, landscapes painted on location, of realistic historical naval scenes very precisely detailed and brushed by his ambidextrous hands. His oeuvre is a reflection of his observation skills, knowledge of the maritime world, his numerous travels, his interest in and taste for distinctly drawn landscapes and a consequence of an overflowing imagination that made him a phenomenal story teller animated by nostalgia—at times even by a certain anguish. Born into a family of artists (he was the maternal grandson of two recognized painters Hortense Dury-Vasselon Grand Prix de Rome and Marius Vasselon, and the paternal grandson of Victor Le Baube, painter/sculptor), he began to draw at a very early age (his parents Marthe Vasselon and Robert Le Baube were themselves exceptional at drawing). The novels of Jules Verne (and the illustrations contained in the Hetzel book collection) left a profound mark on him in his childhood, and as a result they would be a longstanding source of inspiration. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He was widely exhibited: 1954, "la Palette du Tertre" Gallery, Casablanca, Morocco. 1956, “Galerie du Vieux Port” Marseille. 1956, Grand Prix de “La Danse et de l’Opéra” the little flutist, Marseille 1957, “Galerie Nègre” Marseille. 1958, “Galerie Chardin” Paris. 1959, Grand Prix du Palais Royal, presided over by Jean Cocteau. 1960, Galerie Alain le Breton, Marseille.
