HENRI MARTIN, Automne, entrée principale de Marquayrol


"Henri Martin's palette is enchanting. Many different combinations of colours are juxtaposed to create a lush harmony...and it is much more difficult to achieve beautiful colour combinations when representing nature than to simply assemble some pretty colours while representing nothing. Herein lies the gift of the great Impressionists and that is why there are so few."

Jacques Martin-Ferrières, Henri Martin, Paris, 1967, p.42
