The
chronological presentation of the exhibition allows visitors to gain a more
complete understanding of the different aspects of the artist’s work, including
his first works in Paris and in Arcueil alongside Matisse, those from the
fauvism movement, his distinctive nudes which were a combination of academic
studies and sensual encounters, and his obsession with landscapes, whose
meditative and troubling aspects has made Marquet unique among 20th
century painters.

Naturally
reserved, Marquet developed his work away from the artistic debates of the day,
while still maintaining a lasting friendship with Matisse. He only had a few
characteristics of the fauvism movement that he is associated with:
simplification of forms but without deforming them, relative and moderate
colour empowerment without the violent aspect, and the impression of rapid
improvisation. These elements give his works an almost synthetic sobriety.
