In 1910 Chabaud went during the interval of Cézannesque experiments with shape which used to be universal to the entire Fauvist artists. Guillaume Apollinaire even indexed him along-side Matisse, Derain, Rouault, Dufy, Puy and Van Dongen between those that grew to become to “le Cubisme instinctif. ”82 but A Village sq. with its color and lightweight, vast texture and unfastened drawing with the comb is proof that exactly the language of Fauvism accorded along with his Provençal imaginative and prescient of nature. “My canvases... have their whole resource in nature, the only unshakeable beginning on which to build a piece of artwork and past which every thing is folly. ”83 187 188 At the 1908 Salon des Indépendants, Ivan Morozov bought a panorama by way of the Le Havre-born artist Georges (Géo, Gustave Léon) Dupuis which was once entitled The Quai Notre-Dame in Le Havre (c. 1908, Hermitage).

His assembly with Georges Seurat and Camille Pisarro used to be no longer with no end result, nor used to be his research of Impressionism. Lebasque travelled to England, Spain and Italy; he was once keen on engaged on the Mediterranean coast, in Saint-Tropez, great, and Cannes. till 1905 he painted generally landscapes in an Impressionist demeanour which testify to his sensitivity for conveying sun and his wisdom of the means of divisionism.
