Paul SAIN 1853-1908
French painter from Avignon.
He studied at the Beaux-arts d'Avignon, where he won two medals.
In 1877, he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Beaux-Arts de Paris under Jean Léon Gérôme.
By 1879, he was a regular participant in the major French Salons.
Most of his works were landscapes.
He then moved with other artists, such as Agricole Montagne, to a small village opposite Avignon to paint.
In 1887, like many painters of his generation, he left for Algeria, and in 1895 was named Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur.
In 1900, he was chosen to paint Avignon and Villeneuve les Avignon in the prestigious Train Bleu hotel, Gare de Lyon.
He was soon recognized as a great landscape painter by the critics and institutions of his day.
Our painting is very typical of Sain's work, with its broad perspective and cameos in browns and maroons, enhanced by a few white touches.
The moon is peacefully reflected on the river, its rays illuminating the city of the popes visible in the background.
Admire the delicacy with which the painter draws the branches of the tree on the canvas.
