Albert Marquet

Albert Marquet was born in Bordeaux, 26 March 1875; died in Paris, 14 June 1947. He was taken by his family to Paris at the early age of fifteen to begin a thorough training as an artist.  Albert Marquet studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, where he met Henri Matisse in 1890.  Matisse became a life-long friend; both artists were accepted in Gustav Moreau's painting class in 1897.  In 1900 they worked together on the decoration of the Grand Palais at the Paris World Exhibition.  Marquet's first paintings of this period, with their decorative, bright colours, are strongly influenced by the Fauves.  He participated in a group exhibition with Matisse, Derain and Vlaminck at the 'Salon d'Automne' in 1905.
