About

With audacious colours and innovative compositions, Maurice Asselin (1882 - 1947) - the French artist most closely connected to the London Camden Town Group - was one of the most exciting French artists of his generation. This was felt by many of his contemporaries, including painter Walter Sickert, and art critic Roger Fry. In 1915, Asselin had a one-man show in London with Carfax and Co which, according to Paul Nash, was 'probably the most distinguished and exclusive gallery in London at this time’. In Paris, Maurice Asselin had one man shows at the mythical Galeries Chapentier, Galerie Marcel Bernheim, and Galerie Druet. As a matter of fact, his one man show at the Galerie Druet took place in the same year as their retrospective of Pierre Bonnard - which gives an idea how highly regarded his work was. An exhibition of the artist's work has also taken place at the Museum of Pont Aven, since Asselin, when living in Brittany, he belonged to Pont Aven movement. Art critics descibe Maurice Asselin's work as litterary, sensitive, restrained. Walter Sickert calls him: "not only one of the most distinguished artists among the younger artists, but also one of the many sane and normal individualities who are really the important constituants of modern French painting". Paintings by the artist are in museums all over the world, from Moscow to New York via Christchurch, New Zealand. Four of his works are in the Pompidou Centre in Paris. The Fitzwilliam in Cambridge owns an oil, as does the Hepworth, Wakefield. Our painting signed lower centre and is in excellent, all original condition. It is titled by the artist on the back of the stretcher "Marché à Chateauneuf s/L " (ie. market at Chateauneuf on-the-Loire). Chateauneuf is near Orléans, the town where Maurice Asselin in was born. The painting measures 60 x 51 cm. The overall size with its original, beautiful, period "Montparnasse" frame is 80 x 59 cm
