Little known French painter. He was professor at the Gymnasium in Bordeaux (Lycée de Bordeaux). He was a student of Cormon at the Fine art academy in Paris (l’école des Beaux-Arts de la rue Bonaparte à Paris), where he drawn and painted portrait on the street to pay for the academy costs.

There are several oil on canvas and watercolor paintings made in the year of the Great war from Aegean Macedonia, signed “Andre Vidal”. He was probably a soldier at the Army of the orient and visited Florina (Lerin), Vodena (Voden) and other places near today’s Greek-Macedonian border. One such painting, entitled “ Women of village Buf near Florina” is on sale by the fine art gallery Patrick Boutillier (27 avenue de la gare, Saint-Sébastien 23160 , France). Also watercolor entitled Vodena, Macedonia, was sold on Ebay .

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
