Charles Cobelle (1902-1994)

Born in Alsace - Lorraine France in 1902, Charles Cobelle (born Carl Edelman) lived and painted in Paris until the late 1920’s. Before the outbreak of World War II he moved and became a U.S. citizen and primarily resided in New York.

Cobelle obtained his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the University of Munich, Germany and later studied at the L’Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris. He studied privately with Marc Chagall and apprenticed in the studio of French Fauvist, Raul Dufy in Menton on the Riviera.

Best known for his use of open lines within washes of tones and colors, he forged a personal style directly influenced by Chagall and Dufy. Cobelle painted lively scenes of regattas, horse races, and Paris street scenes.

Cobelle established himself as an artistic force in Europe and today is considered the last link to the great tradition of the Open Line School of Paris. In the United States his paintings were immediately sought after by galleries and private collectors alike.

In addition to his mixed media paintings his work has graced the covers of many of this country's leading magazines and his murals have adorned the walls of many elegant residences, public buildings, fine hotels and restaurants.

Today, his work is held in the collection of the Hartford Athenaeum, Tamanaco Hotel, and the Mark Hopkins Hotel, among others. Cobelle died in 1994 in New York, NY.
