Hand painted oil reproduction of a famous post-impressionists painting by Paul-Elie Ranson, The Clearing or Edge of the Wood . Originally done in 1895, today it has been carefully recreated detail by detail, color by color to near perfection. Paul Ranson (1864 – 1909) was a French painter and writer. He was born in Limoges and studied at the Ecole des Arts Decorates there before moving to Paris and transferring to the Academia Julian in 1886. There he met Paul Serusier in 1888. Subsequently from 1890 he became a member and a creative leader of the Nabis group. Les Nabis (prophets) were a group of post-impressionist avant-garde artists that set pace for fine arts and graphic arts in France in the 1890’s. They preached that a work of art is the end product and the visual expression of an artist’s synthesis of nature in personal aesthetic metaphors and symbols. They paved the way for the early 20th century development of abstract and non-representational art. In 1908, he created the Academia Ranson with his wife Marie-France, to teach the Nabi ideas and techniques. After his death in Paris in 1909, his wife continued to run the academy.
