Charles Cobelle (born 1902) was a French (and later American, artist). He studied at the University of Munich and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and was tutored by Marc Chagall, whose influence can be seen in the exuberant and free-flowing style of his work.

Cobelle was extremely prolific and commercially successful. His favored subjects were French street scenes, race courses, and still lifes, all rendered with a joyful vivacity. He was proficient in numerous mediums, oil, acrylic, and watercolor, and his paintings, particularly his street scenes, fit in well with the modern home.

After moving to America in the 1920s and becoming a citizen, his work gained increasing recognition enabling him to become commercially successful, and his work appeared on magazine covers and wall murals. Toward the end of his life, he often signed his paintings Chas Cobelle instead of just Cobelle, and these works are considered to be less collectible.

This is a particularly large and lovely example of the artist at the height of his prowess.
