Om Henri Lebasque: 181 Paintings
Henri Lebasque was a French post-impressionist painter. His vision was highlighted by his contact with Edouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard, founders of the The Nabis' Group, who were the Intimists that first favored the calm and quietness of domestic themes. From his first relationship with Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, he learnt the significance of a color theory which stressed the use of harmonizing colors in shading. Lebasque was a founding member of the Salon d'Automne in 1903 with his friend Henri Matisse. Lebasque also became friends with artists such as Gustave Rouault, Raoul Dufy, Louis Valtat, and Henri Manguin, the last of whom introduced Lebasque to the South of France. His time in South of France would lead to a radical transformation in Lebasque's paintings, changing his color palette forever. Henri Lebasque was called "the painter of joy and light", by both critics and artists. He was admired for the intimacy of his themes and the unique joy in his colors and forms.
