Along the Banks of the Seine, by Raymond Thibesart (1874-1968). Oil on Canvas.

Thibesart’s enthusiasm for ‘plein air’ painting is revealed in this luminous landscape in the French countryside. The dappled sunlight casts notes of color through the dense foliage onto the path, and the leafy branches of the trees are reflected in the shimmering surface of the river. An abandoned rowboat suggests a tryst, adding a note of intimacy to this lyrical bucolic scene. Signed lower right. Framed in gold gilt carved French frame.

"Thibesart was born into a wealthy French family, giving him the liberty to pursue his passion for painting. He studied painting at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and then at the Julian Academy, winning a Gold Medal from the Societe des Artistes Francais in 1897, after which he became a regular contributor to the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Independants in Paris.
The great Venezuelan Impressionist Emile Boggio and the important Post-Impressionist Henri Martin exerted an important influence on his art by taking him on study trips to Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Corsica in order to teach him how to master 'plein air' painting. Thibesart would use pastels to capture outdoors the luminous effect of sunlight on water, the soft, delicate hues of cherry blossoms, and the dazzling effect of snow covered landscapes, later translating these preparatory sketches into large, oil canvases in his studio. But it was his friendship with Claude Monet in Giverny which would have the most profound impact on his work, as the artists exchanged canvases and together explored the effect of light on form and matter.
Thibesart's work was exhibited in numerous Parisian galleries including the Contemporary Art Gallery in 1923, the Knoedler Gallery from 1913 to 1927, and the George Petit Gallery in 1930. International exhibitions included the Wally Findlay Gallery in New York and Palm Beach, the Moderno Gallery in Caracas from 1969 to 1981, as well galleries as in Japan, Holland, Switzerland and Italy, cementing his reputation as one of the important Post-Impressionist painters of his generation.
