A native of Poitiers in the Vienne region, Henri Pailler shows serious drawing skills. Noticed by Edmond Petitjean, the young man was sent to Paris to complete his training at the Beaux-Arts under the aegis of the great Léon Bonnat. First of all accustomed to a style and a very academic palette, the young painter quickly branched off from this classical art which he was hardly fond of. From the beginning of the century he moved towards Impressionism which he deployed within the Crozant school thanks to his meeting with Armand Guillaumin who took him to paint on the motif in 1901. Residing in Poitiers until the At the dawn of the great conflict of 1914, Pailler sent to the Salon many landscapes of the Creuse where the liveliness of colors was more and more felt. It is precisely following the meeting with Dufy and Marquet that a fawn side appears in his compositions, but after a few years he instinctively returns to his love for impressionism by keeping a generous amount of hues on his palette. On his return from the war, Henri Pailler joined Roubaix where he was appointed workshop professor at the School of Industrial Arts. On his retirement he will settle on the banks of the Seine in Triel-sur-Seine, of which he will realize many views with the talent and the colors so appreciated by this painter considered to be one of the greats of Crozant. Throughout his career, Pailler will travel through France and regularly in Périgord, from which he will bring back many works by Bourdeilles mainly but also Brantôme. It is precisely from these two historic towns nestled against the Dronne that the painter delivers these two magnificent engravings to us. The size is powerful and leaves a great depth to the large compositions illustrating these emblematic places in the north of the Dordogne department. This pair of large sheets had remained in the painter's studio until his death, as evidenced by the stamps on the back. Very nice modern frame, curved black strip.
