  • Notes: An original oil painting on canvas by Paul Masset. Created in 2013 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 60 x 73 cm. In this work, entitled “The Alps”, Paul Masset uses an impasto technique in oil to portray the vast grandeur of the iconic mountain range behind Les Arcs, itself a ski resort located in the Savoie region, of the Tarentaise Valley town of Bourg-Saint-Maurice in south-eastern France. Les Arcs is now part of the Paradiski group of ski-related resorts, however, it is unique for its “avant-garde” architecture, labelling it as “heritage of the 20th century”. It is living proof of modernity working in harmony with nature and mountains and as such is being studied by the Grenoble School of Architecture. The resort of Les Arcs has a reputation as being one of the original French “mega-resorts;” with large and numerous networks of pistes for varying skill levels. It also caters well for snowboarders, and is considered by many as the European home of snowboarding. The famous speed skiing course featured in the 1992 Olympic Games can also be found here stretching 2000 metres with an additional 700 metres for stopping. This artwork has been bespoke framed in an attractive gold frame and with hanging attachments on the back. The framed size is 70 x 82 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.
