  • Title: Blue Boat at Porquerolles
  • Creator: Pierre-Albert Marquet
  • Date: 1938
  • Location: Porquerolles, France
  • Physical Dimensions: 17 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches
  • Description: Pierre-Albert Marquet made a name for himself in the Parisian art world by painting complacent seaside images in southern France and Northern Africa. Unlike his contemporary and friend Henri Matisse, Marquet interpreted his views with cooler, more muted tones as opposed to Matisse’s rich, bold colors. The setting for Blue Boat at Porquerolles is the small island of Porquerolles off the southern coast of France. With quick, slithering lines, Marquet’s harbor scene is calmly fluid, as boats lazily float out of the harbor in the cool shadows of early morning.
