Notre Dame. Vue prise du Pont de la Tournelle Signed, inscribed and dated ‘A Lebourg Paris Dec 79’ (lower left), inscribed ‘Notre Dame Vue prise du Pont de la Tournelle’ (lower right) Oil on canvas 64 x 92 cm (251/4 x 361/4 in.) Painted in Paris in 1879 Provenance : Private collection, Switzerland
French impressionist painter Albert Marie LEBOURG (1849-1928) studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts of Rouen, where he is originally from. Close friends with Victor Delamare and Gustave
Morin, he started drawing with charcoal and began to paint alongside the Seine in his hometown – Montfort- sur-Risle. As a professor in Alger around 1875, he was astonished by his surroundings and made colors and lights his chosen field. He discovered the white city with its nuances of various shades.
With his distinct brushstroke, he started to paint winter views burried by the color white like on this snowy view of Notre Dame, signed and dated on the lower left — a good representation of
his style with different soft shades of white pastel colors.
