  Henry Moret

 

Birth name Henry Moret

Born 12 December 1856, Cherbourg, France

Died 5 May 1913, Paris, France

Nationality French

Movement Post-Impressionism

 

 

He figures in the annals of Impressionism as an interpreter of the Breton countryside. He quickly freed himself from the influence of his early master, J.-P. Laurens, and lived and painted close to nature. One of Gauguin's companions at Pont-Aven in 1888, Moret, a solitary man, modest and unambitious, later toured Brittany. The sea in all its moods was his subject, treated freely yet revealing the influence of Monet. His Port Lamatte can be seen in Reims Museum.
