Paul Jean Marie Saïn was a french painter famous for his numerous portraits and his stunning landscapes of Provence, in the south of France.
He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts d’Avignon, his hometown, and at the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris.
In Paris, he became a student of the well know painter and sculptor Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824 – 1904).
He participates in many Salons between 1879 and 1892, and spent many years painting the landscapes of Provence with his friends, the painters Louis Agricol Montagné (1879 – 1960) and Pierre Grivolas (1879 – 1960).
Along with Henri Jospeh Harpignies (1819 – 1916), he is considered one of the greatest French landscape painters of the 19th century.
His works are exhibited in many french museums, such as the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, and the Musée Calvet, Avignon.
