AIR AND LIGHT OF THE NORTH - HENRY MAURICE CAHOURS

Saturday 20 November 2021

Presented in 1973 in the group exhibition Montparnasse and the School of Paris and, the following year, in a solo exhibition with a monographic general catalog of his work by Angelo Mistrangelo, Henry Maurice Cahours, after many other exhibitions the last of which in 2016, is again in our Gallery to tell us his pictorial adventure. We can meet once again his world, about thirty oils and watercolors, made of Brittany seascapes, Montmartre, the Seine, lonely tree-lined avenues, beaches, small villages and fishermen. It is still so striking how Cahours is able to create poetic atmospheres and harmonies, catching always the right light and stopping it on the canvas. As he said: "I am not one of those great artists that recreate nature ... nor one of those who offer to the public an inner life that seems a puzzle. I'm just an old painter, for whom the air and the light have been and will always be the fundamental principles of painting".

We are open everyday, from Monday to Saturday 10 – 12,30; 15,30 – 19.
Sunday 10 -12,30
On Sundays 5, 12 and 19 December we are open in the afternoon too.
