Liisa Corbiere, originally from Finland, first trained as a weaver, then studied visual arts in her country. Traveling in France in the eighties, she discovered the painting of the Provencal Masters. The sensuality and the joy of life emerging from the paintings fascinated her. She threw away her brushes and started using very colourful and thick oil-based paint, working with a spatula. The warm tones and the brilliant colours of paint applied with this tool are mixed and organized to reveal, as by magic, a landscape or a sea view. Provence inspires her and her painting expresses an optimistic and sunny vision of it. This artist from the North, who settled in the south of France over 25 years ago, illustrates the beauty of Provence - the beauty that visitors take with them after they leave the area. She revives the idealization and splendor that natives want to communicate about the region. With a sure hand, Liisa Corbiere poses the matter: in broad flat tints to portray the fields, the houses or the sea, or in small nervous touches
to show a palm tree, a pine tree or flowers. Her resolutely contemporary figurative painting, with its themes, its rich colors, and luminosity, is timeless – like all that is simple and beautiful.

Great Art, Great People to Deal With. I've been doing business with this gallery for fifteen years and have purchased 4 major works of art from them. I love the artists they represent, the quality of work they sell, and the stable employee base that represents the artists. I once had a problem with a frame that showed cracking after two years. They had the art picked up and delivered by professional packagers/transporters after replacing the frame with an even better one. Their level of salesmanship and follow-up customer care is outstanding. I never come to town without stopping in to enjoy some of the best contemporary art available in the French Quarter.
They feature several amazing artists whose work are exclusive to this network of galleries in the USA, including Denis Lebecq and Marc Clauzade. I recommend speaking with Bilal McGlothan or the owner, Scott Novick. Both are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They also have the most beautiful custom frames you will find anywhere.
Beautiful and simple art gallery showcasing the work of immensely talented people.
What an awesome little gallery, with unique, amazing art and attentive service if you want to learn more about any of their artists. We purchased art by a french artist named Lebecq that is nothing short of spectacular.
Best of The Big Easy two years in row for a really good reason!

Sometimes we just drive in from Baton Rouge to see the Lebecq red painting – one day maybe one day.
I found this place after a Saint’s game when my friends ditched me, and the Gallery Director was so awesome I bought a DeVon painting and I love it still to this day. Bilal is amazing.
