About

Here for you consideration is a colorful oil on canvas painting by the well known French artist, Urbain Huchet. Signed lower right and titled verso. In very good original condition. The Place de Tertre In Montmartre is the setting for this painting with artists and tourists mingling and enjoying the energized scene. Overall framed in gold leaf and black ebonized frame in fine condition. Overall measurements with frame 22 by 25 inches. Known for its painters, portraitists, caricaturist and silhouette artists, Place de Tertre welcomes thousands of travellers every day. By day the streets are usually packed with tourists seeking a portrait; by night you hear the constant din of people chattering and enjoying a meal and a glass of wine at one of the many restaurants in the square. The square of Place du Tertre is considered by many to be the heart of Montmartre, located high on the hill approximately 300 metres from the Sacre Coeur Basilica. Urbain Huchet 1930– Urbain Huchet was born in Rennes, France on April 28, 1930. After studying law and owning a textile factory for four years, he decided in 1960 to devote himself entirely to painting. Mr. Huchet spent his first three years as an artist in Pont-Aven, following in the footsteps of the Post Impressionist, Gauguin, and Symbolist, Emile Bernard, both of whom influenced him a great deal. In 1963, he moved to Paris, catching the travel bug. He journeyed throughout Europe and the Middle East, spending time in Indian markets, visiting Peru, Mexico, Egypt, and every beautiful country he could, finding inspiration in each place. He painted the scenery of each locale, culminating in a book to document his experiences. His works are typified by a fluid and free, gestural approach to both form and color, and they are immediately recognizable. He is adept at both painting on canvas and watercolor, and is an accomplished lithographer. His subjects are diverse, but are primarily a reflection of the landscape of the Brittany region as he has a profound love for the coast. Urbain Huchet has been an exhibiting artist since 1960. He has had exhibitions in New York, London, New Orleans, Egypt, and Paris.
