Lucien Rion was born in the town of Forest, close to Brussels in 1875. At the age of fifteen he enrolled at the Academy of Brussels where he began a five year intensive course in both oil painting and the decorative arts. In 1895, as part of his graduation, he presented to the academy a landscape in oils that was awarded the prestigious Prix Donnay. Upon graduating he initially concentrated on the decorative arts side of his education and busied himself producing mosaics, glass sculptures, and decorative metal panels. These were frequently of an ecclesiastical nature and some were exhibited in the Exposition d’Art Religieux Moderne in Brussels in 1912. Included in this exhibition was a series of four copper panels depicting scenes from the life of Christ. After World War I Rion concentrated almost solely on oil painting. He traveled extensively spending much of his time in the south of France, especially the Cote d’Azur, where he found the light conducive to his Impressionist paintings.
This particular example of his work dates to 1925 and depicts a view possibly near the town of Roquebrun where he is known to have spent some time. It is of unusually large proportions as much of his work was painted on a smaller scale.
