Henri-Jean Guillaume Martin1860 – 1943

Born in Toulouse in 1860, Henri Martin absorbed the radical painting styles of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists to develop his own pictorial language. His early style was rigorous and academic, but a sojourn in Italy in 1885 transformed his ideas about art. Influenced by Georges Seurat, Martin began to develop a pointillist-inflected style, using a multitude of short brushstrokes. His paintings exhibit a poetic sensitivity conditioned by his reverence for nature.
