Paul Madeline begun his artistic training at the cole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and supported himself financially through a job in a publishing house. He painted his evocative and colourful landscapes en plein air when his career allowed. Travels across France, from the Mediterranean to Brittany, provided the young and impressionable artist with a wealth of inspiration. In 1894 Madeline was introduced to the fellow Post-Impressionist painter Armand Guillaumin, and from this point onwards he began to depict the French landscape in sumptuous colour and in loose brushstrokes with moss-green and purple tones resonating throughout his work.Madeline exhibited at the Salon des Artistes, the Salon dAutomne and the Salon de la Nationale des Beaux-Arts and by 1902 his artistic success allowed him to focus solely on his art. His landscapes can now be found in notable public collections including the Muse dOrsay in Paris, the Muse des Beaux-Arts in Rouen, Limoges, Nantes and Pau.
