Gustave Madelain

1867 - 1944

Biography

A French painter of landscapes, Madelain was born in Charly, France, in 1867.  Little  biographical information can be found. 

Her exhibited at the Salon des Independants from 1907, and gained quite a fine reputation as a Post-Impressionist painter. 

His main subjects were street and river views in Rouen, L’Havre and Paris.  His work is offered by major galleries internationally.

The Paris riverscape is small, but among his better works. 

 

The composition, brushwork and execution are all of the highest quality. The use of light is exceptional.  The Notre Dame

and Pont de L’Archeveche are silhouetted against an evening sky along the Seine with its riverboats and dockworkers, 

probably ending their day.  There is an enigmatic sense of both energy and quiet about the scene, created by 

Madelain’s use of color, brushwork and space.
