About the Artist: René Seyssaud (1867 - 1952) was a Provençal painter who studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Marseille, his hometown, then in Avignon. Noted for his powerful temperament and his bold palette of bright colours, he preceded the Fauvists in his use of colour. With other artists, Seyssaud formed the group of 'Young Admirers of Impressionism'. Inspired by Provençal land and seascapes, Seyssaud created very striking works which are collected internationally. Invited to the exhibition of the Masters of independent Art in Paris, he was awarded the Grand Prize in 1951. He passed away in Saint-Chamas, France in 1952.
