Raymond Thibesart at KSG Fine Art Gallery

Raymond Thibesart, Brume Sur La Seine (Mist On The Seine) (circa 1920s), pastel on paper

Born into an affluent family, French painter Raymond Thibesart (1874-1968) showed a talent for drawing at an early age. At the age of 11, Thibesart began studies under famed impressionist artist Emile Boggio (1857-1920).

After formal training in Paris at the Lycee Rollin, L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and the Académie Julian, Thibesart went on to become an award-winning artist, known primarily as a post-impressionist. As a plein air painter, he captured scenes of light and shadow in landscapes of Italy, Switzerland, and other European locales. A favorite subject was the river Seine.

KSG Fine Art Gallery inaugurates its new space on the Plaza with an exhibition of Thibesart’s work. The show opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, April 29 (through May 29).
