As a French painter of the Fauvist movement, Albert Marquet (1875-1947) is famous for his landscapes and seascapes. While he favoured a more muted palette than his contemporaries, the beauty of Marquet’s work is displayed through the movement in his depictions of seas and lakes and the reflection of objects and the sky dancing in the water. The artist painted the Art Nouveau ornaments of the Grand Palais for the Exposition Universelle, but his playful and lively brushwork and innate understanding of light serve as his lasting mark on the art world.
