Adolphe Mathis (Monegasque, 1873-1940)
Un port à Martigues
A very fine watercolour on paper, mounted and framed in gilt frame, signed 'A.Mathis' (lower right).
Martigues is often referred to as 'Venise de Provence' with its colourful houses sitting shoulder-to-shoulder along the boat-lined canals giving the island part of the town a touch of Venice feel. Adolphe Mathis, a Monegasque native, genuinely loved South of France and created a wonderful series of finest watercolours celebrating the early 20th century beauty of the glorious Côte d'Azur.
