Henry Malfroy, a highly-regarded French Post-Impressionist painter of seascapes, landscapes and an occasional depiction of Paris, showed in the prestigious Paris Salon and also into the “upstart” Salon des Independants, where the Impressionists had first shocked the world with their striking new works. Henry’s father Charles was a notable painter in the same style, and I actually have a wonderful painting by Charles Malfroy here on my website! The colors and treatment of light in this painting of a Mediterranean port with sailboats are simply delightful – it could hold its own in many museum collections, and will certainly bring distinction to any home where it is displayed. Comes in a very nice antique gilded wooden frame. The size with frame is 13″ x 16″, and the canvas alone is 9.5″ x 12.75″.
