Gabriel Deschamps was born in 1919 and studied at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. From 1939 he was a State Art Professor and a member of the Paris Autumn Salon. He was best known for his evocative landscapes depicting Provence, where he had a house and the spectacular coastline of the South of France. His paintings perfectly capture the fresh, vibrant colours and the intense quality of light in that region.
Deschamps’ paintings were sold to many collectors in the United Kingdom in his lifetime and his works are represented in important private collections in Switzerland, Belgium, Brazil, USA and Argentina.
Deschamps painted Cap Ferrat from a similar viewpoint which was sold by Bonhams, London, 4 July 17, lot 150 for £9,500+ premiums.
