Roger de la Corbiere (1893-1974)

He was born in Vouneuil-sur-Vienne, France, in 1893, July 22, and died in Paris at the age of 81 on Sept 3, 1974.  On August 2, 1922, he married Marthe Germaine Page (1891-1975) in Paris. He had two daughters.

He was influenced by Paul Signac (1863-1935), who helped him to start in La Rochelle at the beginning.  He was a friend of Maurice Denis (1870-1943) and of other ” Art-Sacré” painters in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.  Jean Souverbie (1891-1981) was one of their friends, as well as Lucie Tullat.

Roger de la Corbiere is most noted for his paintings of coastal scenes with emphasis on the sea and the effects of light thereon, even if he painted snowed mountains (French and Swiss Alps).  In France, he exhibited at the Galerie Katia Granoff (Quai Conti, in Paris, as well as in Honfleur) and at the Galerie Hautecoeur (rue de Rivoli, Paris); he exhibited also at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants, Salon d’Automne and Salon National des Beaux Arts. 

Several of his paintings were acquired by the French State in 1925, and are included in the collections of the families of the Maharaja de Kaarpoutala, Comte de Tocqueville, Professor Marion, Andrei Gromyko and the USSR Embassy.

Information provided by Loic Martin with the approval of  Françoise de Mascarel de la Corbiere, the artist's daughter.

Roger de la Corbiere (1893-1974)

Born in Vouneuil-sur-Vienne, France in 1893, Corbiere studied under Choultes at the Academy of Fine Arts.

In the following years, he traveled and painted on the coasts of France, Italy and Spain and his special liking for the sea made him stay at the Rivera for some months each year.

Corbiere gained a following for his coastal scenes and soon developed his unique style while his audience became international and made him a truly successful artist.

The artist has exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Independants since 1922, and at the National Salon des Beaux Arts since 1932.  Several of his paintings were acquired by the State in 1925, and his works are included in the collections of the Maharajah de Khapaithala, the Comte de Tocquerille, Professor Marion and Ambassador Gromyko among others.

Roger de la Corbiere continued to paint actively until his death in 1974.
