Oil on Canvas – Pallet Knife
Her strokes of the palette knife are bold and clean revealing pure, crisp color. The works have delighted collectors since her first one-women show at the prestigious De Young Museum.
Dear Clients and Friends,
Many of you share wonderful memories of the exhibitions of Madame Renée Théobald, as I do. It was a long and happy journey.
When we gave the retrospective shortly after her passing, I never dreamed we would have the opportunity to present her private collection.
These are special works over several decades and many are the original from which lithographs were developed. Many of the paintings graced her home and I am very honored that the family has chosen the gallery for this personal exhibition.

Through the years, Renée Théobald has developed a style which is uniquely personal. Her paintings reveal the confidence of stroke only of years of evolution, from hard work and study, can produce. Although the paintings are masterfully constructed, they are void of rigidity. The spontaneity with which she paints and her rich and varied palette, produce not only the image of the subject but its very essence. Renée’s joy of living, with a deep inner serenity has become an intricate part of each canvas. She is extremely well traveled which adds to her vast array of subjects. The viewer is always aware of her sensitivity to her surroundings and her ability to express her insights. Her art is a true reflection of the woman herself.
