  • Notes: An original work in pastel on paper by Paul Masset. Created circa 2010 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 22 x 27 cm and shows a scene looking through the natural flora and foliage of Midhurst Common, situated in the South of England. Midhurst is a charming little town on the banks of the river Rother, in the heart of the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, and is home to the Park’s new Visitor Centre. Along the Midhurst Town Trail visitors discover historic Tudor buildings gourmet restaurants and cafes, independent shops and one-off boutiques and over 100 listed buildings with charming local character. Some of the South Downs finest vineyards are nearby. Despite its small size, Midhurst today is a bustling market town and truly a little gem, nestled in a beautifully picturesque and nationally recognised area of outstanding natural beauty. The surrounding South Downs area is equally complimented by wonderfully diverse countryside including acres of attractive downland, woodland, wetland and heath. Numerous National Trust properties, parks and museums also lie within a stone’s throw of Midhurst giving the area a distinct diversity of culture and liveliness whilst retaining a quintessentially English character. The town of Midhurst is where Paul Masset resided for some time and is the home of The Midhurst Gallery which has been established for over 30 years. 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 38 x 44 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.
