  • Notes: An original oil painting on canvas by Paul Masset. Created circa 2010 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 42 x 28 cm. Paul Masset has created this piece, entitled “Bosham”, with a view looking across the water of Chichester Harbour with Bosham in the background. Bosham is a small coastal village situated on an inlet of Chichester Harbour, in West Sussex, England. It has been inhabited since Roman times and is renowned for King Canute’s (Cnut the Great) legendary attempt to hold back the waves to demonstrate the futility of trying to do so. Bosham is mentioned by name in the Bayeux Tapestry referring to the 1064 meeting there of Harold and Edward the Confessor before they set off to meet William of Normandy. Today, it is home to sailing enthusiasts where Bosham Sailing Club was founded in 1907. This artwork has been bespoke framed in an attractive gold frame and with hanging attachments on the back. The framed size is 47 x 34 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.
