Albert Marquet’s Fauvist Celebration of The City of Lights

13 November | New York

In this episode of Anatomy of An Artwork, discover Albert Marquet’s revolutionary Paris, Quai Du Louvre, Soleil d’Hiver, offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale. Painted at the height of the artist’s groundbreaking Fauve period, Paris, Quai Du Louvre is one of the most important works in his seminal series of Parisian cityscapes. Muted blocks of color, capturing the haziness of the Parisian air, interact with rhythms created by the bold outlines of trees on the riverbank. With his quick application of pigment, Marquet moves towards an abstracted version of reality. (13 November | New York)
