An oil on canvas, representing a street in Neuville les Dieppe, Norman village
by Emile Louis MATHON
Born in Paris in 1842,
Émile Louis Mathon is a student of Charles-François Daubigny, master of the Barbizon school, and Louis Arban.
He exhibited at the Paris Motor Show from 1868 to 1887.
During his career, he painted Paris and the Seine, country scenes and maritime views (fishing scenes, warships, port views), Normandy and the Channel coast.
A frequent traveller, particularly in Russia (1879), Spain (1882), Algiers with his fresco painter friend Tony Vergnolet (1842-1900) in 1891, and Tunis (1891, 1894), he brought back highly colourful works with rigorous drawing.
In its port scenes, Mathon mainly uses elongated formats, which give a particular panoramic view.
Through his work, the viewer can admire ancient views, now disappeared, of the cities of Dieppe (Pollet district) or Dunkirk.
His works are kept in the museums of Dieppe, Granville, Le Havre and Creil.
