Born in Paris in 1955, Louis Magre now lives in Provence.
He studied drawing and architecture, eventually opting for painting. After studying the nude and creating a number of charcoal portraits, he immersed himself in the impressionist trend and followed the path of his masters such as: Sisley, Pissaro, Monet and Seurat. For several years he has been inspired by the subjects of Provence for their light, their warm tones, but also for the mistral and the olive trees typical of this fabulous region.
The works of Louis Magre can be found in various galleries in France, Belgium, Quebec and the United States, notably in Carmel, California.
