‘Figures in a Treed Landscape’ by Francois Gall

  • ‘Figures in a Treed Landscape’ by Francois Gall


    A finely executed ‘plein air’ rural landscape in the Barbizon manner by noted French artist Francois Gall.

    Oil on wood panel, measuring 9” high x 12.25” wide, signed lower left, and set within its original giltwood frame measuring 16” high x 19” wide x 2.5” deep. The panel is slightly cupped which is not apparent when in its frame.

    Francois Gall (1912-1987) was a Hungarian / French artist who while living in Romania joined a group of other talented artists studying & working in the ‘plein air’ style known there as the Baia Mare School; a style strongly influenced by and very similar to that of the French Barbizon School.

    Gall moved to Italy in 1929 where he attended The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, he then later travelled to France in 1936 where he studied under Andre Devambez at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Paris

    During his time in Paris Gall’s work soon migrated away from the plein-air style of the Barbizon School to that of Post Impressionism, and in 1947 he was awarded the Gold Medal at the Paris Salon for his work titled ‘Bread for the People’. In 1976 he was awarded the prestigious Chevalier dans ‘Ordre des Arts de Lettres, which is the highest recognition awarded to a French artist.

    In 1987 he was elected President of the National Union of Painters & Professional Sculptors.

    Francois Gall is represented in the permanent collections of several prominent European & North American Museums.
