Albert-Marie Lebourg, the French Impressionist landscape painter was considered a major artist of the Rouen School in the early 20th century. Ships at Rouen, is a beautiful example of Albert Lebourg’s landscape painting’s that play with the effects of light and passage of time, within a scene. Here he uses small visible brushstrokes to show the vibrant colours of the sunset reflecting off the water. Rouen, in particular, was a popular city in Normandy for Impressionist artists like Claude Monet to visit for inspiration, from being a port city on the river Seine to boasting huge Gothic churches within the city, and it soon became one of Lebourg’s favourite locations to paint. Like his contemporaries, Lebourg often painted the same scenery multiple times, capturing the view and landscape in different lights.

Born in Montfort-sur-Risle, Lebourg is considered to be a major artist of the Normand School. Lebourg  began his artistic education at the École des Beaux-Arts in Rouen, then continued his training at the École des Beaux-Arts at Bris and completed it by training in an architect’s studio. After his meeting with the    famous collector and connoisseur Laperlier, he was appointed Professor of Graphic Art at the School of Fine Art in Algiers,where he lived between 1872 and 1876. On his return to France he travelled  extensively in Normandy, especially along the Seine , painting around Bougivalle, Rouen, Hondouville and  Honfleur.Lebourg joined the Impressionistic movement early in its inception and participated in the group’s fourth and fifth exhibitions in 1879 and 1880.  As Monet and Sisley were later to do, he often painted the same motif in different lights. Lebourg was first admitted to the Salon in 1883. In 1884 he lived and worked in the Auvergne, and between 1886 and 1895 he lived alternately in Paris and Rouen. In 1896 the Mancini     Gallery in Paris staged an important exhibition of his drawings, watercolours and oil paintings which met with great critical success. In 1900 Lebourg exhibited at the World Fair and in 1918 a large retrospective exhibition of his work was held at George Petit’s gallery in Paris. Lebourg  was made Chevalier de laLégion d’Honneur in 1903.The present example is typical of Lebourg’s interplay between colour and light. The village lies between Louviers and Evereux (Eure) about fifty kilometres from Rouen
