Marie-Louise Degabriel

Lyon 1900-1984

The Lyonnaise painter Marie-Louise Degabriel was a student of the French painter Leon Garraud.  She is known for her quiet scenes of interior life, portraits of herself and other women in her surroundings.These quiet works reveal the poetry in daily life of a city apartment and the small but perfect pleasures of a woman living alone in the big city in the mid-20th century - a cup of tea, a bouquet of roses. Many of the paintings on this page were exhibited in the retrospective of the works of DeGabriel organized by La Maison Ravier (Morestel - Isere) in the autumn of 2002.
