  • Notes: An original work in pastel on paper by Paul Masset. Created circa 2000 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 27 x 22 cm. It is unsurprising that Paul Masset has made the exquisite flowers and natural flora in Grasse the subject of this piece, entitled “Spring in Provence”, using them to frame a view of the landscape. Grasse is located on the French Riviera in the Alpes-Maritimes department, in the south-east of France. The area is considered the world's capital of perfume, a business which has thrived here since the late 18th century. Its association with perfume has been aided in part by the rare and desirable scents native to the local flora as well as the popular perfumeries located in the area. This artwork has been double mounted. The mounted size is 42 x 37 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.
