Using jewel-toned colors, Paris artist William Malherbe (1884–1951) created pulsating vivid surfaces in his florals.

William Malherbe was a Postimpressionist painter born in Senlis, France in 1884.

Malherbe exhibited at the Salon d'Automne, and at Galerie Durand-Ruet in Paris. In 1925 he illustrated a book, La Flame du Poing. He exhibited at the Corcoran in Washington D.C.

There is a sense of Renoir in his technique, the subjects seem to emerge from the canvas as the observer moves further back. He painted beautiful and colourful still lives, outdoor scenes, and nudes. His wife Freda Lipman appears as a figure in some of the paintings.

In 1939 at the age of 55 Malherbe emigrated to Vermont where he remained until 1948.

Works in museum collections (selected): Museum of Art, Boston; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Musée d’ Art moderne, Paris; Pasadena Art Institute, Kalifornien.
