One minute with Albert Marquet

Like Monet, Marquet painted series, and while water lilies are indissociable from Monet, likewise – the Seine and its quays are indissociable from Marquet. Very early on, Paris captured the attention of this artist from Bordeaux.
He painted his own version of Paris throughout his life at all times and under all weather conditions from the window of his successive workshops:

– In 1908 Marquet used the workshop that his friend Matisse has just vacated at 19 quai Saint-Michel

In this famous room VII, Manguin was exhibited notably alongside Camoin, Derain, Marquet, Matisse and Vlaminck…
