About

Signed lower right 'Henry Ottmann' (French, 1877-1927) and dated 1922. A softly painted view of a small village in Provence with rain clouds hanging above the hills and terracotta roofs shining through the mist. Born in 1877 in the Loire Valley, Henri Ottmann first exhibited in the Salon de la Libre Esthétique in Brussels in 1904 and, from 1905, at the Salon d’Automne, the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and the Salon des Tuileries. Benezit, which also gives a signature sample, calls Ottmann "a delicate expressionist colorist filled with sensitivity…”. His cityscapes of Paris, landscapes, still-lives and figural works are all composed with a subtle elegance and painted in a dramatic, yet refined, palette. Henri Ottmann’s work is held in the permanent collections of numerous national museums including the Musée du Luxembourg (Paris), La Courtisane Endormie; and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville, Paris. We are pleased to offer this elegant, cabinet-sized landscape which showcases the artist's subtlety and expressive power.
