Albert Marquet

Albert Marquet (1875-1947) studied in Paris at the School of Decorative Arts, where he became a friend of Matisse, with whom he decorated the halls for the 1900 Paris Exposition in the Art Nouveau style. Marquet spent his life between Paris and various seaports in Europe and North Africa. Earlier work had included portraits and figure studies, but from 1912 he painted entirely landscapes, often the same subject at differing times of day and season.
