Rene Lernon (1921 – 2007)

Until his passing on November 24, 2007, Rene Lernon, the highly acclaimed Normandy impressionist, continued to paint in Rouen. Only a stroke, suffered a decade earlier, slowed his once prolific output. To the select few who acquire his pieces each year, Rene's talent and magic a growing pleasure. Lernon was the last in a painting lineage that included Bouden, Junkind, and Monet: generations of French painters who nurtured the marvelous scenes of Normandy. Rene has paid back his artistic debts: younger Normandy artists such as Bouju and Dubord have taken his interpretation and continued from there. As the last Normandy master of the 20th century, Lernon's career saw many highs, and he won numerous awards throughout the world during his lifetime.
