More Than a Name: Jacques Martin-Ferrières

Early Life

Jacques Martin-Ferrieres was born into a family where the arts were highly respected. His father was the renowned pointillist painter and impressionist Henri Martin, for whom Martin held the greatest adoration.

He received lessons from his father but feared that his own work would face criticism for being “the son of…” And so he didn’t draw attention to this fact. He need not have worried though, as his own artistic career was incredibly fruitful.

As you might imagine, Martin-Ferrieres received an excellent education. […]

Jacques Martin-Ferrières often travelled to Italy, especially his beloved Venice, producing some of his finest works. This beautiful painting of the Venetian canal demonstrates a superb sensitivity of colour with the bright reflections and effects of light. His palette developed throughout the 1930’s, as he continually visited Venice and other locations, as his paintings became more energised and he refined his impasto technique of painting.

Neiges dans les Abruzzes, 1921

2020-01-14T12:42:48+00:00

In this pointillist winter landscape, Martin-Ferrières depicts the monumental mountains located in the Italian region of Abruzzo, focusing on one of the mountain-tops with the snow swirling around what could be a castle or a church. The artist’s superb sensitivity of colour is demonstrated within the painting as at the forefront the subtle harmonies of blue and violet are contrasted with the lighter background hues of pinks and creams, creating a stunning composition of animation and the tantalising effects of light.

Jacques Martin-Ferrières continually painted subjects of landscapes and nature within Southern regions of France, usually standing out for his vivid use of colours and excellent skill. He gradually became known for his technique of thick application of paint, applying layers to the canvas in a freer brushstroke, to create balanced compositions of animation and tantalising effects of light. We can see this in the painting Reflections, as he reflects the light off the water of a river, with subtle […]
