MALLE Charles Born in Douai - 1935
Painter of genre, landscapes,
Parisian and Norman view He will study in the north and then enter the National School of Arts and Industries Textiles of Roubaix.
Charles graduated brilliantly four years later, having obtained first prizes in all subjects. He did his military service in Algeria as an officer of a marching battalion in the djebels then began a career as a teacher of high schools and colleges in Roubaix, Douai and Valenciennes.
But his interest in the history of art, in particular the Romanesque period, his passion for antiquities and his taste for the High Age, made him abandon a career in education to devote himself to the trade of antique furniture.
He opens a restoration workshop in Roubaix and crosses France, Spain and Portugal by following the pilgrimage routes to admire the Romanesque remains and find furniture and objects which he resells to merchants in his region.
He will continue to paint, tirelessly, many views of Paris, but also of Normandy. And will find several galleries in Paris to exhibit it.
