Albert Marquet, Painter of Suspended Time

Albert Marquet, Painter of Suspended Time

The French painter Albert Marquet spent much of his life travelling between the shores of the Mediterranean and the banks of the Seine, making landscape and water his favoured motifs. This unclassifiable artist experimented with the major art movements of his time, from post-Impressionism to Fauvism, while continuing to maintain his stylistic independence by developing his work away from the artistic debates then taking place. Now a new exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris features more than a hundred works, some being shown in France for the first time, which offer a fresh look at the creativity of this often overlooked artist. Painter of Suspended Time highlights Marquet’s constant search for modernity, from his early work in Paris and Arcueil alongside Matisse, to his obsession with landscapes. This is a fascinating tribute to a great master of landscape painting and his astounding feel for colour. JR.
