  • Notes: An original work in pastel on paper by Paul Masset. Created in 2013 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 27 x 22 cm and shows a seascape view, through the trees, across the water of Saint-Tropez Bay, located on the French Riviera in south-eastern France. Saint-Tropez has played a major role in the history of modern art where Paul Signac and Henry Matisse came to exploit the fantastic light. The area lays claim to the emergence of pointillism and Fauvism, and has continued to inspire newer generations of painters such as David Hockney, Bernard Buffet and Massimo Campigli to name a few. In this work in pastel, entitled "Bay of Saint-Tropez”, Paul Masset has created a beautiful view through trees and foliage on the beach across the bay of Saint-Tropez; capturing the shimmering light of the azure blue water in the background. This artwork has been bespoke framed and glazed, with a double mount, in an attractive gold frame and with hanging attachments on the back. The framed size is 40 x 35 cm.
  • Further Information: Paul Masset, was born in 1967 and brought up just outside Paris. At the age of eight his maternal grandfather, the late Gordon Gash of Midhurst, had introduced the young Paul to painting in oils but the defining influence of his art was derived from Peter Norton (1913-1995) who founded the Cubertou Art Centre in south west France. It was here that Paul, from the age of 16, was introduced to the medium of soft pastel inspired by Peter’s friendship with Paul Maze (1887-1979). Paul quickly showed a remarkable aptitude in acquiring Maze’s freedom and vitality of execution through this medium. Like Paul Maze (who lived at Treyford), Paul Masset is a bi-lingual Frenchman with a foot on both sides of the channel. The Normandy School of impressionism (Monet; Manet; Sisely; Maze), the capturing of atmosphere through light and colour (Braque; Matisse; Derain) and their revelation through the medium of pastel (Degas; Vuillard; Delacroix) are the influences Paul Masset brings together in his love of nature, land and sea. In recent years, Paul has increasingly painted in oils and demonstrates his personal and unique sensibility in his pastel drawings and paintings of Normandy, Brittany, the South of France and West Sussex. Paul Masset has exhibited in London, Paris, Versailles, St Germain-en-Laye, Strasbourg and Chichester and many times at The Midhurst Gallery. He and his family live near Rouen.
