Paul Vogler (1852-1904)
The son of a little-known painter, was primarily self-taught. After receiving initial instruction from his father, he received no further professional training, nor did he ever attend a fine art school or academy. He was foremost influenced by and an admirer of Sisley, whose palette and technique he adopted. Though he did not receive formal instruction from Sisley, with whom he was friendly and who helped him in his early career. Vogler was also an intimate friend of the art critic Aurier, the premier defender of Gauguin and Van Gogh.
Vogler possessed an ease and sensibility in his painting that was often noted by his contemporaries. His free application of color earned him a place in the ranks of the Impressionist landscape painters; he had several fervent admirers in the early collectors of this school. Unfortunately he appears to have been profligate with the earnings his success rewarded him. Vogler still produced beautiful canvases known for their fresh, harmonious colors and radiant depiction of light and exhibited along with Bonnard, Vuillard, Lautrec, Anquetin and Signac at the Galerie Vollard
