Louis-Mathieu Verdilhan

July 4, 2013

Louis-Mathieu Verdilhan was a French painter adhered briefly to Fauvism, having previously been influenced by the Impressionists. He was of a generous temperament and the coloured violence and vigour of Fauvism enabled Verdilhan to express his own feelings whilst depicting the same stunning landscapes that Cézanne had painted.
