Maurice Levis biography
Maurice Levis was born in Paris on 11th November, 1860. He studied painting with the great Barbizon master Harpignies and also Jules Lefebvre and P. Billet.

Levis was a very competent artist from an early age and he exhibited his first painting at the Salon at the age of 26. He was a member of the Salon des Artistes Francais in Paris from 1888 gaining several medals here including a distinction in 1895, a third place medal in 1896 and a gold medal in 1927.

Like Harpignies, Levis dedicated his life to painting the French countryside. His landscapes were of northern France and Brittany and were often painted on a small scale. The artist used delicate brush strokes and pastel hues to create fresh and atmospheric works which were charming in their detail. He captured the French landscape perfectly.
