Alexis Auguste Delahogue ( 1867 / 1930 / 36 ) is a French orientalist painter.
Born in Soissons, Delahogue works with his twin brother, Eugène, also a painter.
He was defined as a landscape painter and orientalist painter. Indeed, Alexis and Eugène Delahogue traveled all over the Maghreb, with a more certain attraction for Algeria: from Algiers to Constantine, and from El Kantara to Biskra.
They expose together their small fabrics but do not choose the same themes to exploit. If Eugene paints the souks, the encampments in the oases, Alexis Auguste treats the dromedaries and the static personages. In general, they put on the canvas the peculiarities of the country: the caravans of the desert, the Saharan light, the oases, the inhabitants ... His paintings are luminous, as if he were trying to flee the darkness of the great metropolises.
Influenced by the Post-Impressionist School, the brothers became members of the Society of Orientalist Painters and the Society of Algerian and Orientalist Artists. Alexis Auguste Delahogue exhibited several times at the Salon des Artistes Français and in 1889, he became its member. In his paintings, he has abundantly described the landscapes and scenes of Algerian life in a vibrant light. He is the painter of the caravans of the desert, the oases and the Saharan light.
