Louis Gamain Painting

About

Painting by Louis Gamain, oil on canvas, signed and dated 1865. Excellent condition. Louis Gamain grew up in Le Havre and had a passion for the ocean. At age 7, he boarded his brother's ship going to Marseille but could not take the return trip as he had to disembark upon arrival, due to extreme seasickness. Instead he was placed in a commercial shipping company in Marseille, where instead of working he would often draw marine sceneries. Later in 1821 he moved up to Paris where he hanged up at the Louvre, copying Great Masters and turned himself into a very famous painter . His passionate love for the ocean inspired him to paint mainly maritime scenes and boats. In 1828 he moved back to Le Havre and became a prestigious and acclaimed maritime painter . In 1825 he was introduced to Theodore Gudin, official painter of the Maritime Department, who encouraged and supported him in his painting work. Today his work is well estimated in the world of 19th century figurative paintings.
