Louis-Aimé Japy
A student of François-Louis Français and J.-B.-Camille Corot, Louis-Aimé Japy disdained the family business to devote himself to landscape painting. He made his debut at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français in 1864 and exhibited there very regularly until 1914. He obtained a medal in 1870, a second class medal in 1873, and the silver medal at the Universal Exhibitions of 1889 and 1900. He became a member of the French Artists in 1883, was included in a group exhibition at Georges Petit's in Paris in 1888, and was named Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in 1906. Japy visited Italy at the beginning of his career and brought back from this trip several subjects of paintings, but he mainly painted French sites, particularly of the Jura and his native Doubs. He also brought back many landscapes from his travels in Brittany, Picardy and the Oise. He is fond of delicate studies of light and has a lively touch, without however neglecting the precision of the drawing. Considered one of Corotís most gifted students, Louis-Aimé Japy knew how to translate nature with great sensitivity. The poetry that emerges from his pastoral scenes is often bathed in a melancholic light. His works are present in many museums.
