About

Ink, watercolour and bodycolour on paper Boats in St Tropez Harbour is a lively depiction of a harbour scene, by the acclaimed female Impressionist painter Hilda Clements Hassell. The work shows several small boats on the shore, with the masts of a large harbour behind. The buildings of the St Tropez sea front can almost be made out in the background. The artist used broad, free brushstrokes of watercolour with scribbles of black bodycolour to give a sense of the scene before her, and gave little regard to small details. This is a charming work that would make an excellent addition to any Impressionist art collection. Hilda Clements Hassell was a talented British artist whose work was inspired by the Fauvism of her French peers. The name ‘les fauves’ literally translates as ‘the wild beasts’ and is a term that was coined by the critic Louis Vauxcelles when he saw the work of Henri Matisse and André Derain in the Salon d’Automne in Paris in 1905. These works were the result of a summer spent working with the Fauves in Collioure in the South of France and were made using bold, non-naturalistic colours, where often the paintbrush was bypassed in favour of applying paint directly onto the canvas from the tube. Hassell has incorporated this loose dabbing of paint into her work, and combined with her frequent simplification of form and bright palette, the works appear somewhat abstract. Although Hassell’s work is very much in line with the Fauve’s, she also followed the route of the Scottish colourists, Samuel Peploe and Francis Cadell, on their informative trip to France, Spain and Morocco. Like the Scottish artists Hassell drew from the intense light and opulent colours that she saw on her travels. This enriched her artistic output, establishing her own vibrant post-impressionist style with vivid colours, always handling impasto with strong and confident brush strokes. Hassel lived in London for much of her life and it was there that she became a member of the New English Arts Club. She also exhibited at the Salon des Independants in Paris in 1911 and is known to have spent time in Cornwall, painting St Ives.
