Louis Alexandre CABIE

French School

Louis Alexandre Cabie was born on the 25th May 1853 in Dol and died in 1939.

He was a Student of Henri Harpignies  and Hippolyte Pradelles , he then joined the naturalist school of Port-Berteau (near Saintes  ), where he worked alongside Gustave Courbet  and Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot .

He began exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1887 where he won several medals. He was awarded the Legion d'Honneur.

Much influenced by Corot and Theodore Rousseau , he painted brightly coloured landscapes that were boldly composed.
Cabié painted many works depicting landscapes of the regions he loved.

A street perpetuates his memory in Bordeaux where he moved to in later life. Among his pupils were Francois Max Bugnicourt  .

His works can be found in several museums, including the Musee du Luxembourg (Paris), Allencon, Cognac and Perigueux, the Cabié Museum of Fine Arts, Bordeaux  , the Museum of Fine Arts in Angers  and the Museum of Fine Arts in Chambéry  .
