Henri Roger de Mascarel de la Corbiere (1893-1974)

French oil painter, Roger Corbiere, was most well-known for his ability to capture moonlight and diminishing sunlight on water and snow. His landscapes predominantly depict the coastlines of northern France.

Henri Roger de Mascarel de la Corbiere was born in July 1893 in Vouneuil-sur-Vienne, northwest France. He is most well-known for his coastal landscapes and snow scenes that had a heavy emphasis on reflection of light on water.

Roger Corbiere moved to Paris and studied under Ivan Fedorovich Choultsé, a Russian realist landscape painter. In 1922, aged 29, he married Marthe Louise Germaine Pagé; they had two daughters.

He was influenced by fellow artists and friends, Paul Signac and Maurice Denis.

In 1926 he started exhibiting work with the Société des Artistes Independants, who awarded him a Bronze medal in 1957. He also exhibited at the Salon de Paris for 35 years and was awarded a silver medal in 1954. He frequently submitted work in the annual Salon d’Automne exhibition on the Champs-Élysées.

In 1932 he became a member at the Sociéte National des Beaux Arts and then in 1956 a member of The Société des Artistes Français.

Roger Corbiere exhibited in galleries nationally and internationally; notably the Galerie Katia Granoff, Paris, and the Arnot Gallery, New York. His paintings can be found in the art collection of the French state.

Roger Corbiere died aged 81 in September 1974. He is buried in a cemetery in Châtellerault in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, northwest France.
