|This is an exceptional pair of watercolors, views of River Seine, circa 1930's, by French artist Andre LeVeille (1880-1963). Each watercolor/drawing is in excellent condition, vibrant colors and signed in lower left of image, measuring 7" x 10 1/2" framed 18" x 21 1/2" and 8 1/4" x 11 1/2" framed 19" x 22" respectively. Andre Leveille, a Parisian born in Lille, France in 1880, was well known for painting subjects in oils and watercolor including landscape, portraits, still life and figures. He was also known as a designer in the goldsmithing trade. Due to Leveille’s success as a painter and watercolorist, he was elected Vice-President of the Society of Independent Artists in Paris. Later, he was honored as a Knight of the Legion of Honor. Leveille’s work was strongly influenced by Post-Impressionist Pointillist master Georges Pierre Seurat and he was befriended by the other great French pointillist Paul Signac. Leveille’s work can be found in the permanent collection of the Musee de Paris as well as other regional institutions. PLEASE email me for more photos.|
