Paul Saïn, Landscape Painting

About

Beautiful oil on canvas by French Avignon artist Paul Saïn (1853-1908) representing a riverside landscape. The painting framed in a beautiful 19th century styled frame, with classical technique, is reminiscent of the great " Vedutists " of the 18th century. The painting is dated 1884 on the bottom left, and signed on the bottom right. Dimensions with frame: 161cm per 137cm Dimensions without frame: 105cm per 130cm. Its important dimensions and quality makes it a living room painting or a museum piece. Paul Saïn studied at the School of Beaux-Arts of Avignon, where he won the living model prize, then in 1873 the drawing prize of the Calvet Museum. From 1877 he obtained a scholarship to study at the school of Beaux arts in Paris, in the classroom of Jean-Leon Gérôme. He shared a workshop with Paul Avril, Esprit Michel Gibelin, Désiré Honoré Bérard and Dominique Jean-Baptiste Hugues. He mainly exhibited marine landscapes at the Salons of 1879, 1887, 1889, 1890 and 1892. It is with his friends Marius Breuil, Pierre Grivolas and his student Louis Agricol Montagné (1879-1960) that they go on the other bank of the Rhone, facing Avignon, in the small village of Angles and stopped at the Auberge du Chêne Vert. They planted their easels among the almond trees and the plane trees. In 1887 Paul Saïn traveled to Algeria. He was appointed Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1895. In 1900, he painted the paintings of Avignon and Villeneuve-lès-Avignon for the restaurant Le Train bleu of the Gare de Lyon in Paris. Among his students, the painter Lina Bill (1855-1936) whom he met in 1887, the Avignon painter Jean-Baptiste Brunel, Louis Agricol Montagné, Marius Gourdault and the orientalist painter of Corsican origin Olynthe Madrigali. He often came to Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei, in the meanders of the Sarthe in this picturesque village which attracted many painters. He ended up living there for twenty-five years, as well as Henri Joseph Harpignies or Marie Céleste Prudent Renard, known as Mary Renard. It is at the hostel of Moisy sisters, the hostel of painters, that some will make portraits on the walls by candlelight. Paul Saïn has painted more than 1600 portraits and is considered in his time as one of the greatest landscape painters with Harpignies. He is buried in the cemetery of Saint-Véran in Avignon where his tomb is decorated with his portrait in a bronze medal by Felix Charpentier ( 1894). The city of Avignon named a street in the city after him. The city of Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei commissioned the sculptor Christian Malézieux a bronze bust of Paul Saïn, which now adorns the main street of the village. His works are seen in public collections as : · Alençon · Auxerre · Avignon, Calvet Museum: - Crépuscule de Novembre, vue prise dans l'île de la Barthelasse3 ( November twilight, view taken on the island of Barthelasse3 ) - Le fort Saint-André et la plaine de Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, au soleil couchant ( Fort Saint-André and the Villeneuve-lès-Avignon plain, at sunset ) - Le matin au bord du Rhône ( In the morning by the Rhône ) · Carpentras, Comtadin-Duplessis Museum: - La Vesprée d'Avignon, Oil on Canvas - Le Chemin de la corniche (Les Angles), Oil on Canvas ( The Corniche Path ) - Berger à Sainte-Garde, Oil on Canvas ( Shepherd in Sainte-Garde ) - Portrait de Joseph Eysséric, Oil on Canvas ( Portrait of Joseph Eysséric ) - Clermont-Ferrand · Dijon, Fine Arts Museum: Landscape · Honfleur, Eugène Boudin Museum : Adolphe Marais · Douai · Montpellier · Orange · Paris, Gare de Lyon: Avignon et Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, 1900 · Paris, Orsay Museum: Le pont d'Avignon ( The Avignon's Bridge ) · Perpignan, Hyacinthe-Rigaud Museum: Coucher de soleil dans l'île de Piot, environs d'Avignon ( Sunset in the island of Piot, near Avignon ) · Sète · Saint-Étienne · Sens.
