Who Is Henry Moret?

Henry Moret (1856 – 1913) was a French Impressionist painter best known for his association with Paul Gauguin and the artist colony at Pont-Aven in Brittany and for his richly colored landscapes of coastal Brittany. After his beginning as a more classical painter, Moret’s style developed under the influence of Gauguin and the Pont-Aven artists, and his works became increasingly Impressionistic, while revealing his love of nature. Henry Moret “has been able to fuse together two fundamentally opposing styles: the Synthetism of Pont-Aven and Impressionism.”[7]
