Thérèse Debains was born on March 25, 1907 in Versailles.
She began her apprenticeship at the Académie Ranson in Paris.
Painter of animated compositions, nudes, landscapes and still lifes, she is part of the Post-Impressionism movement.
From 1926, she exhibited at the Salon d'Automne, the Salon des Tuileries and Salon des Artistes Independants in Paris.
After 1934 she made many solo exhibitions in Paris.
Thérèse Debains willingly uses pastel tones for beautiful drawings offering an intentionally blurring effect.
She was influenced by Bonnard which is reflected in both the quality of her intimate painting style and in her use of soft tones.
Our painting represents a theme dear to the artist; the still life treated in all its delicacy where the red, white and yellow flowers, finely drawn, stand out against a barely colored neutral background. .
