Albert Lebourg was a French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist landscape painter of the Rouen School and Member of the Société des Artistes Français. He actively worked in a luminous Impressionist style, creating more than 2,000 landscapes during his lifetime. Lebourg worked mainly in Paris, Rouen and in the Eure district. Like most of the Impressionists, he found ample inspiration in the outskirts of Paris, Sevres, Suresnes and Bougival. Almost every year, from 1884 to 1888, he also went to the Auvergne, and particularly to Pont-du-Chateau (Allier), a place he was very fond of. In 1896-1897 he traveled in Holland and then went to London and Switzerland. But his favorite places were still Paris and Rouen; he loved the banks of the Seine and rendered their soft misty atmosphere and transparent light effects with wonderful subtlety.
