The Port of La Rochelle at Twilight, 1911, oil on canvas, private collection.
Maxime Maufra was a French landscape and marine painter, etcher and lithographer. In his paintings, Maufra sometimes quoted the technique of Pissarro or Sisley, and also took from the strong colors and powerful drawing of the Pont Aven school. However, he stayed an independent artist his all life through, and dedicated his art to recording the beauty of nature.
Days and days of La Rochelle sunsets. Moules au curry. And Billy Joel, for some reason.
