Paul Madeline was a post-impressionist painter born in 1863 in Paris. He studied Fine Arts at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris. He founded “ La Société Moderne” alongside painters Lebasque, Raffaelli, Aman and Chabas.

Madeline mostly painted landscapes throughout France especially of the regions La Creuse and Brittany. His paintings show remarkable light and use of colours. It is only in his later paintings that he introduced some figures in regional costumes, especially from Brittany.

He died in Paris in 1920 and few years later, in 1926, The Salon des Indépendants devoted a retrospective to him.

He was an annual exhibitor of the Salon des Artistes, the Salon d’Automne and the Salon de la Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
