Luc Didier (French, b. 1954)
in 1954 in Goelzin (Nord) near Douai, Luc Didier is one of the finest
living painters in France. Renown for capturing the vanishing countryside,
he studied first with his father and has been dedicated to his profession
since the age of 22. He debuted in several Salons including the
prestigious Salon desIndépendants in Paris. The Vincent Mann
Gallery in New Orleans first introduced Didier's paintings to American
collectors in 1993.
work captivates the viewer with a dazzling technique that then reveals,
with tremendous intimacy, the character and natural beauty of the
most magnificent regions of France. Each subject is imbued with
fullness, enriched by the memory of the painter. His gesture is
decisive, his content always generous, each painting a timeless
blend of Impressionist heritage and contemporary realism.
Luc Didier generously conveys to us these exquisite portraits of
hidden corners, allées and waterways of rural France. Whether
it is an intimate visit to the door of a fisherman's cottage on
the Bay of Arcachon, the clarity of air on a high-summer day in
Dennevy, or the piney scent of an entrancing dappled path in Corbigny,
we are transported through the brilliance of his technique and the
passion of his art.
His paintings have been acquired by discriminating art patrons worldwide,
from France to New Zealand, England and other European countries.
He is represented exclusively in the United States by Vincent Mann
