(1902-1994) Born in Alsace-Lorraine, France, and becoming a U.S. citizen in the late 1920s, Charles Cobelle, whose birth name was Carl Edelman, began his career in Paris after earning Bachelor and Master's Degrees at the University of Munich. Later he studied at the L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and with Marc Chagall. At Menton on the Riviera, he apprenticed with Raoul Dufy.
In the United States where he lived in Brookfield and Fairfield, Connecticut, he continued to create mixed-media paintings, and also did mural work for commercial establishments such as Neiman Marcus Company in Dallas, Texas; The Desert Inn in Las Vegas, Nevada; and the Teheran Restaurant in New York City.
His work is in the collection of the Hartford Atheneum, the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, and the private collection of Howard Hughes.
Guy Dessapt was born on 6th of July 1938 in Central France. The works of this Frenchman are highly prized by art connoisseurs worldwide. In Japan, Dessapt is considered part of the Paris School which includes such renowned artists as Marc Chagall, Roger Bonafe, Roul Icart, Bernard Buffett and George Laporte. He spent many of his early years painting in the streets of Montmartre, attended the highly acclaimed “Art Decoratifs” school in Paris, and fell in love with the city. Dessapt also spent a great deal of time traveling throughout Europe, capturing the spirit of each place he would visit. In the 1960s, he spent seven years in New York and explored a variety of artistic techniques. The technique he developed, blending acrylics and oils with texturing compound, creates a rich surface texture and brilliant colors in well balanced compositions. His paintings seem to shimmer with specks of pure color, forming stunning reflections and somber shadows.
His pieces evoke strong, seemingly romantic emotions difficult to explain. After experiencing tremendous success in the U.S., Dessapt moved back to the French countryside in the house his grandfather built and now paints only one or two pieces a year in the traditions that inspired him in his youth: Those of French impressionists and the street painters of Paris.
Henry Peeters, nom de plume Hing Biu, was born in Canton China in 1951. In 1978 he made the bold move to the United States where he found immediate representation with Gallery Revel. Moving from the flat surface of his realistic paintings, Henry Peeters gradually began working with various palette knife techniques to develop his current style of impasto impressionism painting. Gallery Revel proudly offers Henry Peeters Paintings and has the largest selections of his original paintings available. Please inquire as not all of Henry Peeters paintings are listed online and are available for viewing in the Gallery.
