Léo Gausson (self-portrait)


French landscape painter in the Neo-impressionist and Synthetic styles, who also did engraving and sculpting. He first found his inspiration in the Barbizon School, then slowly turned to Synthetism, and also had a connection with the Symbolist movement; corresponding with several noted writers.

Despite his successes as an artist, he often had financial difficulties. In an effort to alleviate them, he took a position with the French Colonial Administration and was posted to Guinea in 1901, where he spent eight years.

Upon returning to France, he settled in Paris. Having no children, he often visited his nephew, who had a small shop in Lagny-sur-Marne. He was there when the German Army occupied Paris in 1940, and remained until his death on 27 October 1944 at age 84.
