“Rare As Precious Stones”

“If I look at a fragment of Henri Martin’s canvas… I immediately recognize it. I see a great number of dots of different colors, as precious and rare as precious stones.  His palette is an enchantment. Many different interminglings of colors make a rare and rich harmony… And it is much more difficult to find a good harmony of colors when representing nature than to assemble some nice colors, representing nothing. In here lies the gift of Impressionists and that is why there are so few”

(Jacques Martin-Ferrières, Henri Martin, Paris, 1967., p. 42).  Sotheby’s
