HENRI LEBASQUE (French / 1865-1937)

Henri Lebasque, renowned as the painter of the good life, was profoundly influenced by the Nabis and the Fauves, especially Bonnard who was a close friend. Henri Lebasque also absorbed the lessons in colour of the pointillists Seurat and Signac, and of his Fauve friends, including Matisse, Dufy, Valtat, and Manguin. It was Manguin who introduced Lebasque to the south of France. Henri Lebasque was born in Champigné (Maine-et-Loire). He studied at the Beaux-Arts d'Angers before going to Paris, where he was taught by Léon Bonnat; but Lebasque was more influenced by his friendship with the elderly Camille Pissarro than he was by Bonnat.
