Saint-Macoux sur la Charente
This is a fine original French Post-Impressionist oil on canvas depicting a view of the village of ‘Saint-Macoux’ on the River Charente in the Vienne department of Western France by the eminent Post-Impressionist painter Georges Charles Robin (1903-2003). The painting is signed by the artist and hangs in a fine French Impressionist frame.
As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished.
George Charles Robin studied at École des Beaux-Art, and was a student of Paul Michel Dupuy. Robin travelled and painted throughout France but was particularly attracted to Brittany, Normandy and the Loire Valley. His impressionistic portrayals of these idyllic river landscapes convey their rich colours and enormous beauty.
Robin was elected officer of the Académie des Beaux Arts and served as a member of the jury of the Paris Salon. He was awarded numerous major French awards and received commissions from several European heads of state. In the UK Georges Charles Robin has always been represented by the eminent West End fine art dealers Gladwell & Patterson.
