STANISLAS-VICTOR-EDOUARD LEPINE

Caen 1835 – 1892 Paris

 

 

The art of Stanislas Lépine joins the pre-Impressionists with the Impressionists.   He established his reputation with views of Paris and paintings depicting life on the banks of the Seine imbued with an atmosphere unique to his oeuvre. Although he gained little recognition during his lifetime, he was highly regarded by his fellow artists and, in 1874, was invited to exhibit in the first Impressionist Exhibition.

 

Lépine was born in 1835 in Caen, Normandy, to a family of cabinet makers. A pupil of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, he exhibited at the Salon in 1859 and during the early part of his career benefitted greatly from the patronage of the collector Hazard and his friend Comte Doria. The critic Georges Lecomte said of Lépine: ‘Il était unique, le direct élève du divin Corot’. The influence of Johann Barthold Jongkind was also very strong; this can be seen particularly in his choice of subject matter and use of light. Lépine was a consistent artist and his style hardly changed after 1869; as a result his works are difficult to date.

 

Lépine died in 1892 at the age of fifty-seven, almost totally paralysed; he was so poor that a friend had to make a collection to pay for his funeral. After his death his work began to gain some of the critical acclaim that he so richly deserved and a retrospective exhibition of his work was held at Durand-Ruel in December 1892.
