Catalogue Note

1938 was as busy a year as ever for the peripatetic Albert Marquet. After visiting Amsterdam, Sweden and Copenhagen during that winter and spring, he and his wife Marcelle accepted an invitation from a friend to visit Cap Brun near the port of Toulon. At that time, he executed this work and a larger version (now in a private collection, Japan), both of which brilliantly capture the effect of a hot, misty summer day on the Mediterranean.
