"Oil On Canvas, View Of Montauban By Henri Marre"
Beautiful representation of Montauban by henri MARRE MARRE Henri Born in 1858 in Montauban (Tarn-et-Garonne). Died in 1927. 19th-20th centuries. French. Painter of landscapes. He was a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse, then in Paris, but returned to his native region. He exhibited at the Salon de Paris from 1880 to 1889. His landscapes are painted with a rich paste, in sober and contrasting colors. Bibliogr. : Gerald Schurr, The little masters of painting, 1820-1920, tomorrow's value, Les Editions de l'Amateur, t. II, Paris, 1982. Museums: CHAUMONT: Interior. Sébastien Marre (later Henri) was born in Montauban on January 24, 1858. Son of a carpenter, he grew up on the banks of the Tarn and learned drawing at the Brothers, without neglecting to immerse himself in the Museum of the lesson of the great Ingres . The Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse welcomed him from 1875 to 1878. He perfected his drawing with J. de Lacger and the painting during Master Garipuy. On the benches of Augustins, a band of friends is formed: Henri Martin, Paul Gervais, Antoine Bourdelle and Achille Laugé. In 1877 and 1878 Gervais, Martin and Marre share the prizes. The Montalbanian follows in Paris his friend Henri Martin. At the School he received a few months Jean-Paul Laurens courses, before finally joining the studio of Alexandre Cabanel where he studied from 1880 to 1883. The young man begins his first stakes at the Salon of French Artists to which he will remain faithful until 1899. Portraits, paintings of history and peasant subjects, altogether fairly classic, characterize the production of the 1880s. Little at ease in the capital, Marre returned to the country in 1883, in Saint-Maurice near Lafrançaise d first, then to Montauban where he sets up his studio. Never in the studio, always by the ways - what Henri Martin often complains during his frequent passages by Montauban - the little dry man, blue eyes and pointed beard, walks everywhere his easel, in search of a picturesque site or an old typical farmhouse. It is in the intoxication of the outdoors that the painter definitely finds his way and his subjects. His slightly dry style becomes softer and his touch becomes vibrant. Couples of old peasants faint in mysterious twilights, soon supplanted by pure landscapes where the stones and the lauze bathed in sun contrast on green backgrounds. In their shared quest for landscape, Henri Martin and Henri Marre will be the accomplices of many working sessions on the motif. This new painting seduces buyers, and for more than 10 years, from 1903 to 1914, Henri Marre exhibited his landscapes at the Salon des Independants. His situation in Montauban stabilized in 1891, with an appointment as professor of artistic drawing at the Municipal Public course. Seconded by his nephew Jules Soureillan in 1909, Henri Marre held this position until his retirement in 1920, and earned the rank of Academy Officer (1901). The painter married late in 1910 with Marie Castanié, his younger brother of 22, who taught sewing in Toulouse. Their only daughter, Jeannette Marre, will later work as a painter under the name of Sébastienne Marre. Marre and Martin, very close, experienced a similar evolution, moving from a realism tinged with symbolism to the pure landscape. This research on color and light, they will extend to Collioure where the Montalbanais will lead his friend in the early 20s.
