Catalogue Note

As Martin once mused, "My preoccupation with rendering atmospheric effects increased...after three months in the country, face to face with nature. Trying to capture its diverse effects, I was compelled to paint it differently. The natural light, now brilliant, then diffuse, which softened the contours of figures and landscape, powerfully obliged me to translate it any way I could, but other than using a loaded brush—through pointillé and the breaking up of tone" (quoted in Eden Close at Hand: The Paintings of Henri Martin (exhibition catalogue), Anderson Galleries, Beverly Hills & Hammer Galleries, New York, 2005, p. 26).
