>> Paul VOGLER (1852-1904)
Impressionist painter born in 1852, Paul VOGLER was Alfred's pupil Sisley. The latter influenced his pupil so much that a work by VOGLER "Alley near a small town" was wrongly attributed to Alfred Sisley. His simple and vigorous technique which highlights the effects of light, will allow him to experience success, particularly with his views of the banks of the Seine (Paris, Argenteuil ...) and the Oise (Eragny, Neuville, Pontoise ... ). We also owe him numerous representations of the landscapes of the Midi (Cassis, Marseille ...) or even of Brittany (Gulf of Morbihan ...).
For art historian Gérald Schürr * "if he does not have the chromatic finesse of Sisley, his eye perceives the thousand shades of dawn and dusk; winter is his favorite season, and restores melancholy poetry in always harmonious compositions ".
* Gérald Schürr, 1820-1920, the little masters of painting: tomorrow's value, Volume 1, Editions de la Gazette, 1969, p. 102
