Biography photo for Stanislas Lépine

Stanislas Lepine was a landscape painter born in Caen, France in 1835.  Twenty years later he moved to Paris and became friend with other painters of that time such as Cals, Ribot, and Colin.  He was a student of Eugene Boudin at Salon Des Artistes Francais and later while spending the summer of 1859 in Normandie, he became a student of Corot with whom he was associated for 15 years. 

He also was greatly influenced by Johan Bathold Jongkind, in the painting of ships such as Sailing Boats in Caen Harbour (private collection).  Other subjects of Lepine's were nocturnes of port of Caen, views of overcast Paris and the streets of Monmartre.   Lepine's paintings are known to be small in scale and placid in mood.  His series of views of the Seine, which he painted all of his life, have become synonymous with his name.

Lepine exhibited in the first Impressionist exhibition, held a Nadar's in 1874, although he is not usually considered an Impressionist. Lepine received the First Prize medal at the Exposition of 1889.
