Georges Charles Robin (1903-2003)
Modern/Post-War French Landscape Artist
Born in Paris in 1903, Georges Charles Robin was a student of Paul Michel Dupuy at École des Beaux-Arts, achieving success in his early career as a stage designer for the Charleville Theatre and the Dinan Casino. Robin travelled and painted throughout France, but was particularly attracted to Brittany, Normandy and the Loire Valley. His expressive and colourful portrayals of these idyllic river landscapes are truly compelling. Robin became a Professor, an elected officer of the Académie des Beaux Arts, and served as a member of the jury of the legendary Paris Salon. He was highly praised, achieving several major international awards and receiving commissions from European Heads of State and government. Represented by distinguished art dealers, the work of Georges Charles Robin resides in many important private and museum collections around the world.
