Gustave Madelain was born at Charly (Aisne) and quickly developed his own interpretation of French post Impressionism.
He specialised in painting landscapes of all types and these he usually did in oil paint. He regularly showed his work in Paris and regularly submitted his work to the “Salon of Independents” from 1907. As a painter he gained himself a reputation as having an individual “flair”-vusing bold colours and a flamboyant style.
Madelain also painted a number of canvases of La Havre and at Rouen; though it was naturally invParis that he had his greatest success. His work is well regarded all over the world and is highly sought after whenever it comes up for sale or at auction.
