Artist: Adolphe-Félix Cals 

Date:1858

Adolphe-Félix Cals (1810 –1880) was a French portrait, genre, and landscape painter. He initially trained as an engraver under Jean-Louis Anselin, then went on to study art at the atelier of Léon Cogniet. He left because his neoclassical-influenced teacher, didn’t approve of the emerging impressionist movement in art. In 1863, Cals exhibited at the "Salon des Refusés", alongside works by Monet, Degas and Pissarro. He went on to paint portraits of art dealer Pierre–Firmin Martin and his wife. In the next phase of his career ,influenced by Corot, he worked in more subdued tones, more closely matching the Impressionists. He divided his time between Paris and Honfleur from 1871, but in 1873 finally settled in Normandy which has been called "the cradle of impressionism". He regularly visited the "Saint-Simeon Farm", famous as a meeting place for artists and writers, like Claude Monet, Eugène Boudin, Jongkind and Baudelaire. He painted the harbour, the sea and its associated human life. Monet invited him to participate in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874 until 1881.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
