Henri Moret: 105 Masterpieces

ByMaria Tsaneva

This Art Book with Foreword by Maria Tsaneva contains 105 selected reproductions of paintings from Henry Moret. Henry Moret was a French Impressionist artist. After initially painting in a fairly classical manner, Moret's style developed under the influence of Gauguin and the Pont-Aven artists. As time went by, his works became more and more Impressionistic, while exposing his love of nature. Maxime Maufra comments his paintings: "Coasts, forests, valleys, in every season he observed them with all his senses, reproducing them with all his spirit and sincerity." A catalogue to one of his exhibitions described how he "occupies a unique place in the evolution of art at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century, as he has been able to fuse together two fundamentally opposing styles: the Syntheticism of Pont-Aven and Impressionism." In addition to his oils for Durand-Ruel, he also completed some 800 watercolors and drawings.
