About the artist: Biography from Vallejo Gallery LLC A student of his father, Paul Lecomte, Sr.,(1842-1920), the young man developed his ability in concert with a large extended family of noted artists. He studied at the Beaux-Arts in Paris with Cormon. Paul Emile Lecomte excelled in portraying the natural settings of France's bio-diversity. His landscapes varied widely from marketplaces to isolated country sides, and he seems to have favored marine scenes with people about their routines. A majority of his works portray the Normandy Coast. A member of the Salon des Artistes Francais since 1902, he exhibited quite often and won a gold metal for his work. He was an official painter for the French Ministry of Marine department. His impressionist's technique is quite well-developed, with an implied structural sense for reality. Lecomte's work continues not only on his father's path, but harkens back to the days of Boudin, with whom it is likely the young artist briefly crossed paths with along the harbors of northern France. The Paintings of Paul Emile Lecomte Are Extremely Popular in Europe and New York Art Markets, and Have an Expanding Audience Worldwide.
