Biography  
Louis-Mathieu Verdilhan


Louis Mathieu Verdilhan moved to Marseilles at a very young age and briefly attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. His brother, André Verdilhan, was also an accomplished painter. Louis Mathieu’s friend Antoine Bourdelle, who regarded his work highly, called him Le Mathieu. He was also close to Suares, Marcel Brion, Louis Audibert, Albert Marquet, Doucet and Robert Rey, who dedicated a preface to him. Despite loosing his left eye, he continued to paint. Verdilhan adhered briefly to Fauvism, having previously been influenced by the Impressionists. He was of a generous temperament and the coloured violence and vigour of Fauvism enabled Verdilhan to express his own feelings whilst depicting the same stunning landscapes that Cézanne had painted.   ...  Displaying 750 of 1447 characters.
