Robert Antoine Pinchon

If I have to be honest, I am a huge fan of landscape paintings. I love the idea of capturing a magnificent moment of the nature’s cycle and then transferring it . Every piece of work that I have seen carries a different vibe, which I find very intriguing since some of the paintings are created by the same painters. But enough of this. If I have to combine the two themes: Postimpressionism (see other posts) and landscapes, then I cannot omit mentioning Robert Antoine Pinchon.

He was a French Post-Impressionist landscape painter of the Rouen School (l’École de Rouen) who was born and spent most of his life in France. He was consistent throughout his career in his dedication to painting landscapes en plein air (i.e., outdoors). From the age of nineteen (1905 to 1907) he worked in a Fauve style but never deviated into Cubism, and, unlike others, never found that Post-Impressionism did not fulfill his artistic needs. Claude Monet referred to him as “a surprising touch in the service of a surprising eye.”
