Léon Detroy

1859 – 1955

Impressionist painter, discovered the Valley of the Creuse in 1888. Moved to Gargilesse in 1890. Recognized by Bonnard and Vuillard, will range between equals with Signac. After using the impressionist technique he abandoned in 1910, he will choose a Fauve painting, close to Matisse. These tables show a mastery comparable to that of the largest post-impressionist painters.
