Adolphe APPIAN (1818-1898)
excels in all the fields of arts.
Talented engraver (named the Delacroix of the charcoal), he very quickly met with success in painting.
His style is close to the Barbizon School.
Appian's landscapes have "expression and feeling", according to some critics.
In the catalog of the Salon du Dessin de Paris in 1868, one can read "A sincere love of nature, a poetic feeling, which he takes from his masters Corot and Daubigny, place M. Appian in the best rank of our landscape school."
His paintings are at the same time soft and delicate, vigorous and lively.
In the foreground, a touch all in material almost sketched, when the distant ones are more licked.
Appian is a colorist, precise and talented. Cold and warm colors are opposed and cohabit perfectly.
Appian's career was crowned with success: 14 gold medals, 21 silver medals, and his works are present in many museums around the world.
