Henri Le Sidaner Biography
1862   Born on the island of Mauritius
1871   Relocated with his family to Dunkirk
1880   Relocated to Paris
1882   Admitted to the Ecole des Beaux-Artes
1885   After several years of study under Alexandre Cabanel, he became influenced by the work of Edouard Manet
1900   Visited and later purchased a house in the village of Gerberoy (Siene et Oise), thus inspiring many of his paintings to follow
1939   Died
  Le Sidaner travelled extensively throughout his life, visiting Holland, Belgium, Venice, London and New York; he also moved constantly throughout France.
  In 1900 he visited the tiny village of Gerberoy (Seine et Oise) where he later bought the house which became the inspiration for many of his paintings and where he painted his beautiful still lifes.
  He exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Galeries Georges Petit in Paris and the Goupil Gallery in London.
  Although the work of Henri Le Sidaner appears to be impervious to the artistic changes taking place at the beginning of the twentieth century he was not totally unaffected by the development of Impressionism and neo-Impressionism.
  His work is very much in the realist style but at the same time evocative and poetic, if combines a dreamy quality with a technical expertise and his atmospheric paintings, whether they be landscapes or still lifes, are symptomatic of his unique personal vision.
