  • Notes: An Original work in Pastel on paper by Paul Masset. Created in 2003 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 13 x 17 cm and shows a view of the river, trees and fauna near the Pech Merle caves. This work entitled “Pech Merle 1”, was produced near Cahors in south-western France. The medieval city is almost entirely surrounded by a bend in the River Lot which can be crossed by the famous Valentré Bridge. Other than the beautiful natural flora, fauna and spectacular views, the area’s most unique and popular attractions are the painted caves at nearby Pech Merle where the artwork of early man is depicted by bison, horses, mammoths and human figures. Paintings and engravings dating back over 20,000 years are on display at Le Centre de Préhistoire de Pech Merle. 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 25 x 30 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.
