Biography of Paul Madeline  ( 1863-1920 )

During his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Madeline works in a publishing house for living and then started to paint urban landscapes. In 1894, he discovered the Creuse region and the Limousine countryside after he met Maurice Rollinat and Léon Detroy.

He exhibited at the Salon des artistes français in 1894, 1897 and 1899. Later, he was appointed permanent member of the Salon d'Automne, as well as of the Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.

The success he achieved enabled him to live from his art in 1902. He then devoted himself entirely to painting and visited several months a year Creuse, usually in the fall. A major figure of painters in this region, Paul Madeline is one of Armand Guillaumin’s emulators, drawing inspiration from his palette and technique.

In 1908, he founded "La Société Moderne", which brought together painters such as Henri Lebasque, Jean-François Raffaëlli, Edmond Aman-Jean and Maurice Chabas. Devambez and Durand-Ruel galleries are invited to their annual exhibitions.

Madeline travelled a lot in the 1910s and towards the end of his career he introduced some characters into his landscapes, wearing regional costumes especially from Brittany.
