Gaston Delaparède ( - )
Born in the south west of France, Gaston Delaparède is a French painter, draughtsman and watercolorist.
Married to a woman from Concarneau, he immortalized many landscapes of the city's surroundings, but also subjects from North Africa, Algeria and Morocco. Gaston Delaparède painted scenes of Breton villages and harbors, in very colorful tones. One can feel the influence of Mathurin Méheut in his line as well as that of Maurice Moy. He had a Parisian studio and sold very little. The collection of his studio was dispersed after his death by his heirs, about a thousand works.
