  • Notes: An original work in pastel on paper by Paul Masset. Created in 2002 and hand signed by the French born artist. The image measures 20 x 14 cm and shows a view out across the vast landscape near Strasbourg with rolling mountains in the distance. Strasbourg is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in eastern France. Located very close to the border with Germany, the area was historically Alemannic-speaking which explains Strasbourg’s Germanic name. Despite their violent disputes throughout history, Strasbourg is immersed in Franco-German culture and has proven a bridge of unity between the two nations for centuries. The city is the official seat of several European Institutions including, on occasions, the European Parliament. Strasbourg’s historic city centre, the Grande Île, was named a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1988 which was the first time and entire city centre had been given the honour. Its metropolitan district is the ninth largest in France and the University of Strasbourg is the second largest in France; the port of Strasbourg is the second largest on the Rhine. The city is steeped in culture and history with fantastic architecture of the Rhineland. Its black and white timber-framed buildings are seen throughout the medieval cityscape. Among its most notable buildings are the medieval bridge, Ponts Couverts, and its sandstone Gothic Cathedral with the famous astronomical clock. Today it is a hub of river, rail and road transportation as well as important centre of manufacturing and engineering. This artwork has been double mounted. The mounted size is 31 x 25 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.
