From an early age, Marie showed outstanding artistic talent and went to study at the Fine Art Academy. Marie favoured depictions of the coast, rivers, or lakes of the French countryside and her oeuvre is dominated by paintings of fishing boats beautifully reflected in rippling water.Maries technique and style reveals the influence of her husband, the successful French artist Rene Emile Charles Coulon. However, Maries use of bright colours, such as orange and cobalt blue, is unique to her evocations of the French landscape. Marie exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon and the Salon dHiver and in 1954 she was awarded the Gold Medal of the Paris Salon and the following year the coveted Hors Concors. Gladwell Co purchased numerous landscapes directly from the artist between 1950 and 1970 and her work is included in many important private collections.
