NEW YORK, NY.- Hugo Galerie, a fine art gallery in New York City specializing in contemporary figurative painting and sculpture, announced its new show by French artist Fabienne Delacroix, featuring 32 new works that include quotidian city scenes, snowy countrysides, and quaint seaside towns that move and inspire.

Fabienne Delacroix, the youngest daughter of naïf master painter Michel Delacroix, is internationally celebrated for her charming and nostalgic depictions of the French city, countryside and seaside. Although her work can be linked stylistically to her father’s, she has distinguished herself as a unique and talented artist in her own right. She has a mastery of light and color that is like that of French Impressionists and paints not only with acrylics but also with gouache and watercolor.

Until recently, Fabienne was known mainly for her seascapes and pastoral landscapes while her father was renowned for his Parisian cityscapes. At the end of 2014, Michel retired from painting and passed his legacy to Fabienne, who has now expanded her list of subjects to include the streets of Paris. Like her father’s, Fabienne’s Paris is an older, simpler one with horse-drawn carriages filling the streets. Although she is now carrying on her father’s work, Fabienne continues to paint the French countryside, seaside, and sometimes even New York City and Boston with her signature flair.

Hugo Galerie has also published a book commemorating the exhibition, Delacroix: La Belle Époque, which features her works ranging from quiet, domestic interiors to convivial, park scenes and serene, rainy days to luminous, breezy coasts. Delacroix is a gifted storyteller—she supplies all the details necessary and none that burden. The cityscape’s perspective is present without appearing geometric; painterly crowds are full of unique personalities that blend into a cheerful collective; every snowflake is discernible yet not one contrived. Everything glows with life and light. Her pieces are at once playful, joyous, and lyrical. They are saturated with Delacroix’s undeniable love and admiration for the seasons she depicts and the people and families living in her little worlds.

Born in 1972 to a family of artists, Fabienne was introduced to art by her father, Michel Delacroix. At just ten years old, she exhibited her paintings for the first time at a gallery in Carmel, California; the show completely sold out. Since 1996 she has devoted herself entirely to painting. She has had numerous successful exhibitions across the US and abroad. Her artwork is held privately and publicly, including within the permanent collections of the International Museum of Naive Art of Magog (Magog, Canada) and the Salon of Naive and Intuitive Art (Belogradchik, Bulgaria). She currently lives and works in Paris, France.
