  • 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 26 x 22 cm. In this work in Pastel, entitled “The White Sail”, Paul Masset uses his unique style to capture an intense yet delicate seascape of white sailing boats near Dieppe. Dieppe is located on the English Channel coast at the mouth of the Arques River. Its port is known particularly for its divine scallops and regular ferry service to Newhaven in England. Its unique feature sea port was constructed by architect Ventabren during the rebuilding of the town after being largely destroyed by Anglo-Dutch naval bombardment in 1694. The town's castle, Château de Dieppe, which survived the 1694 bombardment, is now a museum and exhibition space, with a strong maritime theme. Since the early 1800s it has been popular as a seaside resort, and has some fantastic sandy and pebbled beaches. Dieppe became famous with English artists during the latter part of the 19th century as a beach resort and to inspire their artistic works. This artwork has been bespoke framed and glazed, with a double mount, in a limed wooden frame and with hanging attachments on the back. The framed size is 42 x 38 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.
