Le Canal de L’Ourcq a Pantin
Stanislas Lepine was a French Impressionist landscape painter born in Caen. He devoted himself to painting in 1935 and eventually moved to Paris to work at various artists’ studios. By 1859, he is finally able to study with Eugene Boudin, though he never received any academic training. The following year he meets Camille Corot in Normandy and becomes his student. Lepine worked alongside Corot for the next 15 years, and his final style is attributed to his time with the great landscape artist.
Pont de Mondo
Along with being heavily influenced by Corot, Lepine also looked up to fellow painter Jongkind for inspiration on his color palette and use of light. Lepine had his first Impressionist exhibition in 1874, and his paintings of the ports in Caen and city scenes of Montmartre met with great acclaim.
The Port at Caen
Lepine had a few wealthy patrons during his lifetime, such as the Comte Doria, as well as an influential art dealer. Nonetheless, he died suddenly and in relative poverty in 1892. He typically signed his work “S. Lepine” and rarely painted anything other than cityscapes and landscapes, though a figure study or still life would be a rare find.
Today his work is housed all over France and perhaps in your own home. Still wondering about an Impressionist landscape hanging on your wall? Contact us, it could be by Stanislas Lepine.
