  • 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 24 x 16 cm. Paul Masset has created this work, entitled “The Seine at Bougival” showing the light on the water and beautiful local flora lining the river, with an atmospheric sky overhead. Bougival is a village in the western suburbs of Paris, about 10 miles from the centre of Paris, in north-central France. The area has been the site of many French artists painting the light, sky and water along the Seine. These include Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley and Berthe Morisot. It is home to the “Impressionists Walk” which follows a series of six historical placards marking the spots where the noted masters painted, depicting scenes of Bougival. Bougival is also the where Georges Bizet composed the now world famous opera Carmen, and where he later died in 1875. During the 19th century, Bougival emerged as a fashionable suburb of Paris. The area also became know as the “Cradle of Impressionism” during the Belle Époque and has since continued to inspire artists with its culture, history and beauty. This artwork has been bespoke double mounted. The mounted size is 35 x 27 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.
