Léon Giran-Max

French painter
(1867-1927)


Léon Giran-Max was painting especially landscapees. He also was one of the founders and the treasurer of the Salon d’Automne.

He exhibited at the Salons of the Nationale and of the Indépendents and was appointed a knight of the Légion d’honneur for his artistic accomplishment. A major exhibition of the artist’s landscapes of Pontoise, Nice, and Spain was held at the Galerie Le Barc de Boutteville, Paris in the spring of 1898.

The obvious sincerity of his landscapes forces the sympathy of the spectator. He plays with charm of the water gleaming under the sun, of the pink tiled roofs stacked on the sides of the hills.
