About the artist: HENRY D'ANTY (Paris 1910- 1998) is a French painter From an early age, Maurice was very drawn to drawing, devoting his moments of freedom to sketching, inspired by the surrounding landscapes. After receiving his graduation diploma, he began to work with his father as a sales representative, but he got up very early in the morning to draw before leaving for work. He drew and painted on cardboard, canvas and anything that could serve as a support. In 1934, he married Nelly Blondel. This marriage is part of the world of painting, because the young woman was herself a painter. Three children were born from this union. Meanwhile, the war separated the young couple. Henry d'Anty was mobilized in 1939 and assigned to a health unit. The family disperses. He was taken prisoner at Berck in 1940, escaped in 1942 and divorced when he returned to civilian life. Henry d'Anty studied art at the Académie Julian and developed a lot of affinities with the artists of the Grande Chaumière. His palette is colorful. It is dominated by a powerful ruby red with which it generally combines ocher and blue. D'Anty paints large impastos which are superimposed on each other and saturate the canvas with their luminous intensity. Then, he identifies the essential shapes of the painting, emphasizing them here and there with black touches. D'Anty paints scenes of rural life, country festivals and still lifes. He is inspired by Brittany, Béarn and the North of France despite his inspiring Montmartre life. Some of his paintings are reminiscent of the work of Maurice de Vlaminck The files from the Petit Palais show that his works have been exhibited in many galleries and museums, as well as in the main French salons. Many critics such as Guy Bataille, Jean Chabannon, Paul Reboux and André Warnod were interested in his work. His name appears in the Bénézit and Pierre Morgane devoted a book to him which appeared in 1962 by Éditions Mauber.
