Paul Vogler (1852-1904)
A painter of the second generation of Impressionism, Paul Vogler drew much inspiration from Sisley's work. Self-taught, he had no master and did not attend any school of the arts or academy. Through hard work, sensitivity and talent, he was able to take an interesting place among Impressionist landscape painters.
This is how he painted many landscapes, mainly Midi, Brittany, Seine and Oise, at different times of the day but also seasons, to play with the effects of light thanks to his technique very personal, simple and vigorous.
In 1893, he directed the sets, funded by Tola Dorian, Pelleas and Melisande Maurice Maeterlinck for the staging of Lugne-Poe.
He exhibited at the Ambroise Vollard Gallery in Paris from February to March 18995.
One of his works, Alley near a small town, was wrongfully attributed to Alfred Sisley because of an apocryphal signature not original but later applied to hide his. Announced in January 2016, this falsification was discovered during the restoration of the painting by Julia Tholen at the Kunsthalle Bremen, to which it was given by Johann Friedrich Lahmann in 1937. This painting was however not listed in the catalog raisonné of Sisley by François Daulte.
