STANISLAS LÉPINE PAINTINGS FOR SALE & BIOGRAPHY
Stanislas Victor Édouard Lépine studied with Camille Corot in Paris between 1860 and 1875; he was also profoundly influenced by the work of both Eugène Boudin and Johan Barthold Jongkind. His talent was recognized, along with that of Adolphe Félix Cals, by Count Armand Doria who offered him generous hospitality and patronage at his château at Orrouy, near the River Oise. He began exhibiting at the Paris Salon in 1859 and exhibited at the Salon every year until 1889. Lépine was invited to participate in the First Impressionist Exhibition in 1874, held at the photographer Nadar’s former studio on the Boulevard des Capucines. In 1889, Lépine was awarded an honorable mention at the Exposition Universelle.
Lépine spent most of his career painting serene views of the valley of the River Seine, from the heart of Paris to its estuary.
