Henri Martin’s Ramparts à Collioure, executed in 1915, displays an idyllic landscape suffused with a warm atmospheric light and sense of serenity. The present work epitomises the tranquility of Martin’s rural idyll and is a joyous expression of light, colour and texture. The castle of Coillioure is carved by the beaming sun into blocks of gold, shadowed in purple-pink, set against the undulating hills in the distance, while the iridescent sea ebbs in the foreground. Enchanted by his surroundings, Martin experimented with the application of paint as much as with colour; the brushstrokes depicting the sea are looser than the ones that comprise the ramparts and hills, conveying its shimmering, shifting surface. With its glorious setting and striking architecture, Coillioure had been attracting artists since the 1880s and drove Martin to buy a house there in 1923. Martin’s views of Collioure are among the most dazzling of his career.
