Maxime Maufra paintings added to GeocodedArt
Painting by Maxime Maufra (1861-1918). Maufra worked almost exclusively in landscapes, and his paintings show a great variety in terrain, palette, lighting, and mood. One feature is consistent, though, in all 100+ of his landscapes: only very rarely do they include images of people, even though in many cases boats or buildings are shown. In his varied style, Maufra, more than other artists, lets each place speak for itself. The essence of the place is not hidden behind too much flashy painter technique nor emotional overlay.
