Georges Coulon, French

Georges Coulon was not only a painter, but a sculptor as well. He attended L’Ecole des Arts Appliques in Paris and was taught by the master sculptors Wlerick and Malfray. Even while sculpting, Coulon remained obsessed with painting and was strongly influenced by the magnificent rigor shown in the Spanish, Flemish and French still-life paintings.
Coulon displayed a rare freshness of execution and skillfully applied glaze to heighten the intensity of color to his oils. His designs are filled with a certain poetic spirit which indeed express reality mixed with the admirably of human nature.
His still life realism makes one think of French country kitchens assailed by the aroma of fresh baked bread, the round of cheese waiting to be sampled; a bottle of wine, and the recently plucked tart cherries nestled in their basket. Coulon’s images fill the senses with delightful pleasures and his works are striking to the eye.
