Eugène-Louis Boudin Paintings

Eugène-Louis Boudin Paintings

Born at Honfleur, Boudin was the son of a harbor pilot, and at age 10 the young boy worked on a steamboat that ran between Le Havre and Honfleur. In 1835 the family moved to Le Havre, where Boudin's father opened a store for stationery and picture frames. Here the young Eugene worked, later opening his own small shop. Boudin's father had thus abandoned seafaring, and his son gave it up too, having no real vocation for it, though he preserved to his last days much of a sailor's character: frankness, accessibility, and open-heartedness.

In his shop, in which pictures were framed, Boudin came into contact with artists working in the area and exhibited in the shop the paintings of Constant Troyon and Jean-François Millet, who, along with Jean-Baptiste Isabey and Thomas Couture whom he met during this time, encouraged young Boudin to follow an artistic career. At the age of 22 he abandoned the world of commerce, started painting full-time, and traveled to Paris the following year and then through Flanders. In 1850 he earned a scholarship that enabled him to move to Paris, although he often returned to paint in Normandy and, from 1855, made regular trips to Brittany.

Dutch 17th-century masters profoundly influenced him, and on meeting the Dutch painter Johan Jongkind, who had already made his mark in French artistic circles, Boudin was advised by his new friend to paint outdoors (en plein air). He also worked with Troyon and Isabey, and in 1859 met Gustave Courbet who introduced him to Charles Baudelaire, the first critic to draw Boudin’s talents to public attention when the artist made his debut at the 1859 Paris Salon.

In 1857/58 Boudin befriended the young Claude Monet, then only 18, and persuaded him to give up his teenage caricature drawings and to become a landscape painter, helping to instill in him a love of bright hues and the play of light on water later evident in Monet's Impressionist paintings. The two remained lifelong friends and Monet later paid tribute to Boudin’s early influence. Boudin joined Monet and his young friends in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1873, but never considered himself a radical or innovator.

Boudin’s growing reputation enabled him to travel extensively in the 1870s. He visited Belgium, the Netherlands and southern France, and from 1892 to 1895 made regular trips to Venice. He continued to exhibit at the Paris Salons, receiving a third place medal at the Paris Salon of 1881, and a gold medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle. In 1892 Boudin was made a knight of the Légion d'honneur, a somewhat tardy recognition of his talents and influence on the art of his contemporaries.

Late in his life he returned to the south of France as a refuge from ill-health, and recognizing soon that the relief it could give him was almost spent, he returned to his home at Deauville, to die within sight of Channel waters and under the Channel skies he had painted so often.

Laura Lacambra Shubert. Fine Art

Plum colored juicy red wine in a paper-thin glass goblet, two bare feet pressed gently onto a water-glistened sandy beach, chipped tile on a weathered patio floor, a sun-kissed fa?ade of a French chalet, and the luminescent fire of a candle are just a few from the extensive scale of subjects Laura Lacambra Shubert represents with her very loose yet splendidly elegant brushstrokes. Light and shadow perform as the key elements in each creation where strategic yet seemingly effortless strokes of bright white acrylic depict an intense sunlight on sculpted outdoor boxwood. Tints & tones of gray offer dramatic shadows underneath a simple stack of plates, and contribute to the movement of a multitude of creases in a chef's apron. As James R. Nelson, of The Birmingham News states, "these paintings are simple, direct, rich & lush. As visual panaceas, they demand little from the viewer and offer a quiet haven for the stressed "." I like art that can communicate to people who do not have a doctorate in art history. Anyone can feel or get something from my paintings. I'm seeking an intuitive and emotional response from the viewer ". Shubert was born in Durham, North Carolina, raised in Florida and Spain, and at a young age chose art as a career. Laura received a B.F.A. from Southern Methodist University where she studied painting, drawing and printmaking. Shortly after, she studied painting at the Academie Port Royal in Paris. Shubert's work can be found in private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad. Her work is exhibited in several galleries throughout the United States. Laura Lacambra Shubert resides in Winter Park, Florida. Site, On-line translator

Arts Columnist James R. Nelson Laura Lacambra Shubert Paintings Exude Bravura and the Good Life 01/18/04 Recent Works by Laura Lacambra-Shubert. Monty Stabler Galleries. Through Jan. 31. A promising young artist, Laura Lacambra-Shubert, paints in a bravura style filled with tactile energy. Her ability to catch the effects of light and her concentration on pattern relationships is masterful. A willingness to sacrifice detail without loss of descriptive content recalls the brush work of Edouard Manet and the defining textural realism of Wayne Thiebaud. This exhibition is dominated by studies of figures, usually waiters or chefs. She eliminates individuality by painting torsos beginning at the neck and ending above the knees. This enables her to integrate the figure into her work as part of a pattern of colors, textures and shapes. The assertive boldness of her compositions is both sophisticated and matter of fact. A woman tying her apron, waiters carrying wine and glasses and still lifes of wine bottles are treated with functional anonymity that the viewer recognizes as true and accurate. Lacambra-Shubert's street views show building facades dappled with the pale light of morning or the strong contrasting light of late afternoon. Something as simple as two bottles of wine lying on a white cloth achieve the impact of two cannons lying in snow. Her fascination with the art of gracious living focuses on the idea of ??food and wine. These are paintings that convey a sense of well being, of the good life and of deep and quiet pleasures. It is good to see works by a painter who loves and respects what paint can do in describing what is worth studying for pure pleasure.
