ANNA MASTERS, A FASCINATING STORY
On the occasion of our 30th anniversary, English artist Anna Masters confided in us in a text filled with tenderness, delicacy and emotion:
“My grandfather was a painter. He often went to Honfleur to paint, and when he died, I inherited his crate of oil paints. I still have it, and the paintings I’ve bought are mixed with his. That’s why I always feel connected to him when I visit Honfleur, as if I’m following in his footsteps.
This painting by my grandfather – which unfortunately does not represent Honfleur – but which, by coincidence, is in the street in Clerkenwell where I held my first solo exhibition. I love the way the past seems to echo our future. For you, Grandpa, my artistic inspiration”.
The artist goes on to say: “I had a great time in Honfleur celebrating their 30th anniversary. I met collectors, got to know the wonderful artists better and, as always, was warmly welcomed by the family and their staff. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next chapter of their story.”
