ROGER REBOUSSIN (French / 1881-1965)

Roger André Fernand Reboussin was born in Sargé (Loir-et-Cher). Reboussin is famous for his paintings of birds, and for the monumental book Les Oiseaux de France he produced in collaboration with the writer Marcel Jeanson. The 388 gouaches for this project took Reboussin 30 years to produce; they are now housed in the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris. From 1912-1931 Roger Reboussin exhibited with the Société des Artistes Animaliers, and from 1922-1938 with the Salon des Artistes Français. In 1945 he was awarded the Prix Gillot-Dard. For thirty years Roger Reboussin was Master of Drawing at the French Natural History Museum, which staged a retrospective of his work in 1967. Roger Reboussin is often compared to Barrye; an interesting comparison can also be drawn with the art of Mathurin Méheut.
