Henri Pacquet
Normandy, the Seine at Giverny French Impressionist Landscape by Henri Pacquet

1923

About

I am proud to be able to present a painting by a noted Impressionist whose work almost never becomes available. A friend of Claude Monet and his family, Henri Maurice Pacquet (1890-1973) had long been neglected. This has changed in recent years. French museums - notably those in Normany, where Monet and Pacquet were active - have begun to present Paquet's work, notably during one man shows durning the annual "Normandy Impressionist Spring" festival. Henri Pacquet was born in Glatigny, near the English Channel. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris from 1912, and from 1918 started dividing his time between Paris and Giverny, where he became a neighbour of the Monet's. Initially close to Michel Monet, he soon became a friend of the family. Claude Monet and he would paint the same places: the maison Hochedé, Giverny and Vernon, the arms of the River Seine. Pacquet's paintings from of Giverny are his most luminous, joyful and free. Like Monet's late work, they appear to be almost abstract close up, compositions that translate nature into a kaleidoscope of light. The work presented here was painted in 1923 - the year in which Monet painted "Water Lilies: The Japanese Bridge". Signed and dated at the lower right, it depicts the Seine near Giverny - very possibly the path along the river which towards the town of Vernon. An oil on canvas on a stretcher of excellent quality, the painting bears Henri Pacquet's Paris address, as well as an old exhibition or collection label "27" on the verso. Measuring 65 x 92 cm, it is presented in its original 1920s frame. The overall framed size is 73 x 100 cm.
