    18" x 24" / 46 x 61 cms

    Oil on Canvas


    This beautiful original oil painting by Georges Charles Robin depicts a snowy French river scene. Robin lived in the affluent suburb of Rueil Malmaison on the western outskirts of Paris throughout his life. The summer months were often spent near Morlaix in Brittany where Robin had a second home; there he would capture idyllic seascapes and charming river estuaries bathed in sunshine. However, throughout Robin’s career the Loire Valley and the Dordogne region inspired his greatest works.

    • Recognised as one of the best Post-Impressionist artists, Robin’s skill and complete command of his palette set him aside from his contemporaries. Following the ‘en plein air’ practice of the Impressionist masters, in a few swift brushstrokes Robin brought life to the trees and rivers of the French countryside.


      Enthralled by the enchanting river valleys of rural France that flowed through the luxuriant countryside and rolling fields, Robin’s paintings perfectly capture rustic and typical French life. Combining his deft and delicate touch with vigorous, dramatic brush strokes and palette knife work, he produced exceptional paintings.


      Feted by the French artistic establishment and his many patrons during his lifetime, the multitude of awards that Robin garnered for his work illustrates the acclaim in which he was held. Gladwell & Patterson had a close relationship with Robin for the last 50 years of his life and are acknowledged as the world experts on his work.
