Painting by Émile Boyer "Paysage à Mougins"

Notes: Based in Montmartre, he met Utrillo and Modigliani there, and began painting around 1912. He was invited to exhibit at the Salon d'Automne and the Tuileries. The drawing is basic, the colour is built, he does not tell anecdotes, he only paints landscapes, flowers, typical characters. Collector Paul Guillaume and naïve specialist merchant Wilhelm Uhde bought some of his works.

He exhibited at the Chéron gallery in October 1922, Maurice Raynal prefaced the exhibition catalogue, and then at Bing in March 1926. Boyer was supported and purchased by Wilhelm Uhde, Princess Murat, Paul Guillaume, Princess Aga Khan and Saincène. It was his lavish period "he had a villa by the sea, two cars, a driver" wrote Pierre Bureau in his book on Leprin, which seems very exaggerated according to his family. In 1973, the Montmartre Museum organised an exhibition, as well as the Bernheim Gallery and the Dechaudin Gallery.
