Gustave Loiseau Biography | Oil Paintings

10-3-1865 Paris, FRA – 10-10-1935 Paris, FRA

Loiseau, Gustave

Gustave Loiseau served an apprenticeship with a decorator who was a friend of the family. In 1887, with money from an inheritance from his grandmother, he enrolled at the École des Arts Décoratifs where he studied life drawing and painting but, a year later after an argument with his teacher he left the school.

While still a student, he worked as a decorator, in the apartment of the landscape painter Fernand Quigon. After he left the École des Arts Décoratifs, he asked Quignon to private tutor him in painting. In 1890, he took a trip to Pont-Aven in Brittany for the first time, where he met and fraternized with the artists there, especially Paul Gauguin and Émile Bernard. After experimenting with Pointillism, he adopted his own approach to Post-Impressionism, painting landscapes directly from nature. His technique known as en treillis or cross-hatching gave his works a special quality, now recognized as his specialty.

Gustave Loiseau first exhibited at the Impressionist exhibition in 1890, then at the Salon des Indépendants in 1893, the Salon de la Société Nationale in 1895 as well as another Impressionist exhibition in 1896.

Gustave Loiseau's paintings, reveal his passion for the seasons from the earliest starting point of spring to the harvests later in the fall, and often depict the same scene as the year goes by. Claude Monet was another artist that liked to paint series, which include cliffs, harbors or churches. From the 1920s, he painted many still-lifes. His overall approach, rather than being associated with any particular theory, was simply an attempt to represent scenes as sincerely as possible.
