Gustave Vidal was a 20th Century French painter known for painting Provencal landscapes, of the Basque Country, Corsica, as well as the center of France.

 

Born in 1895 in Vaucluse, France, Vidal went on to study at the Beaux Arts in Avignon and exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français in Paris. While in Paris, he was influenced by the Impressionism and abstract work he encountered, applying a thick impasto technique, using both palette knife and brush. Vidal won many awards in his lifetime for his Naturalist landscape, marine, street scene and seascape paintings.

 

He died in Avignon in 1966.
