Hippolyte-Camille Delpy (1842-1910)
"Rameurs sur la rivière"
A pupil of Charles-François Daubigny as early as 1855, the pictorial style of Delpy was strongly influenced by the master of the Barbizon school.
Here is a couple of rowers on a peaceful river; on the far left, a peasant woman walks along a path, a basket in her hand
An absolutely sublime work, very luminous, which will delight lovers of Delpy and/or painters of the Barbizon school, both by its subject (canoeing) and by its pleasant composition.
Delpy travelled regularly with the Daubigny family during his apprenticeship, met Corot who encouraged him.
As of 1870 he worked mainly at La Ville D'Avray and Auvers-sur-Oise. He befriended Camille Pissaro and Paul Cézanne.
He exhibited at the Salon on numerous occasions, receiving several awards.
He also received an honourable mention at the 1889 Exposition Universelle.
The Parisian gallery owner Georges Petit organized several solo exhibitions for him.
His works are present in major museums around the world: Phoenix art museum, Louviers museum, Béziers museum...
It obviously enjoys large quotes, up to €30,000 in public sales, regularly between €10,000 and €15,000 for his best subjects, such as the one we offer you.
