Acquired at the above sale by the present owner
The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Cyrille Martin. We are grateful to the Musee de Cahors Henri-Martin for their assistance in cataloging this lot.
The present work depicts the famous Lot near the picturesque village Saint-Cirq-Lapopie in south-western France, where Maritn bought a house in 1912. The artist would often spend the spring season there, enjoying beautiful views and “exercising his sense of composition” as written by Claude Juskiewenski in 1974. Many art historians noted, that Martin’s painting, particularly those of later period, reflect the clarity of light and vivid coloring of the south. The painting reflected the brilliant colors and scintillating brushwork that characterize so much of the artist’s landscapes after he left Paris and is a particularly fine example of Martin's mature style.
