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 .
