Henri LEBASQUE (French, 1865-1937) ✿

Henri Lebasque (1865-1937) was a French Post-Impressionist painter, born in Champigné, France. He moved to Paris in 1886 where he came under the influence of Auguste Renoir and Camille Pissaro, and started exhibiting at the Salon des Indépendants.
He would go on to paint both domestic interiors and landscapes throughout his life, gradually adopting the Fauvist style. Though the flatness of form and color took on a subtler effect in Lebasque’s work than that of other Fauves, he was championed by critics for the intimacy of his themes and the joy in his paint handling.
Lebasque’s work we can be found in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
