Albert Marquet (1875-1947) was a mysterious figure, one of the lesser-known painters of his generations, a member of the Fauves' movement, whose work consists mainly of Primitivist landscapes. This collection of his paintings in Russian museums contains evocative scenes of Paris along the Seine, Menton and Saint-Jean-de-Luz in Southern France, and the Bay of Naples. There are many paintings of northern Africa, where he spent his later life.
Mikhail Guerman is head of the Modern Movements Section of the Russian Museum in St Petersburg, Professor of the History of Artistic Culture at the Teaching University of St Petersburg, and a member of the International Association of Art critics. He has written thirty books about modern art, including another study of Wrubel.
