"Clazomènes in Moonlight," Painting

About

Henri Valensi studied at the L’Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris and travelled extensively before the outbreak of World War I. He visited countries throughout Europe as well as Russia, Turkey and Greece. Valensi was greatly inspired by his travels and in 1912 he was one of the founders of the Section d’Or along with artist such as Metzinger, Le´ger, Delaunay, Picabia and Gris. This charming moonlight scene was painted in 1913 during a visit to Turkey and with its rich blues and greens is a very atmospheric painting with echoes of Van Gogh. During the war he was the peintre de l’Etat-Major du General Gourand and one of his paintings from this period was acquired for the Government Art Collection in the UK. After the War Valensi began traveling again, exhibiting in Rome in 1923, where he was introduced as a French Futurist. He became best known for his creation of an approach called both "effusionist" and ‘Musicalist’ typified by a rhythmic, ‘musical’ division of the composition and the superimposing of different views of the same motif. His Salons of the Musicals, established in 1932, were held in Paris, Prague, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Budapest, and Limoges. In 1973 the first retrospective of the Salon de Peintre Musicalist was held in Paris at the Galerie Hexagramme, and Valensi was represented in the exhibition ‘Paris-Moscou’ at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris in 1979. Henri Valensi’s work can be found in a number of French museums, including the Muse´e des Beaux-Arts, Lyon and the Muse´e National d’Art Modern, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
