Le Havre Fair - Albert Marche. 65 x 81 cm
Some called them “wild” for violating all the traditions of painting, others spoke of the most cheerful artists - the Fauvists, being neither a school nor a major movement, managed to leave their indelible mark on the entire world of art, and Albert Marche was one of the most talented originals.
The painter Marche today is not as famous as other French people, for example, his best friend, senior comrade Henri Matisse. However, it was a significant transition between the art of the past - impressionism, namely, Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, and the art of the 20th century, which gave rise to many different directions - "isms" (pointillism, futurism, orphism, etc.).
The picture “Fair in Le Havre” can be attributed to the textbook work of Fauvism. Here it’s easy to notice everything inherent in both the movement in general and the artistic language of Marche, in particular - pure local colors, bright colors, clearly visible sharp contrasts, and, of course, the black line, then thin, then excessively bold, which traces all the contours of the elements pictures.
The composition of the picture suggests - the artist created it, looking from the window. And this one looks so much like Albert Marche! Active, energetic, he constantly changed the addresses of his workshops as soon as the views opening from their windows, as well as the surroundings were captured and explored.
The viewer sees a bright, cheerful cityscape, where the white roofs of houses and a large carousel shimmer with a ribbed surface of the river depicted in a delightful blue color. A small audience is represented in the form of sketchy spots, and the color chosen is more than concise - black, in some places supplemented with bright touches that paint elements of the wardrobe.
For all the originality of the manner, this image of the fair cannot be denied realism, although this veracity is of a completely different nature. Rather, Marche saw this, or really wanted to see the world like this, following the covenant of his teacher, an outstanding teacher, Gustave Moreau - you should think only in color.
