Marcel Wibault

artiste peintre

"Parce que chaque chose se convie à regarder, on a tant à dire."
(As every thing claims our attention, there is so much to tell !)

From his early childhood he sketched the solders of the 60th infantry regiment marching past his house in 1914 and this set him on his professional path...

Marcel WIBAULT was born in Besançon in 1904

Art student after the war, he began by studying watercolor and drawing and took the old houses of his home town as his subjects.
His canvases evoke the area's placid rivers and the lakes of the Doubs region.
He is a tireless draftsman and is commissioned to illustrate a book about Margaret of Austria and also produces a wonderful pen and ink drawing of the church at Brou, in the Ain region.
