(1895 Martigues - 1944) In the harbor of Martigues, under an atmospherically colored sky, the view of the bay of Martigues, bustling with numerous fishing boats and people. Painted in a late Impressionistic style, with broad brushstrokes and virtuosic rendering of local colors, this characteristic marine view is typical of the artist. Henry Malfroy was likely a son of the painter Charles Malfroy, with whom he is often confused, as both had a preference for painting the Mediterranean locations of the departments Bouches-du-Rhône and Var on the Provençal Côte d'Azur. Henry Malfroy regularly exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français and the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. Oil on canvas; signed and dated, with location Martigues and the year 1926. 60 cm x 92 cm. Framed.
