About

Wimbledon Fine Art in association with Vera Schuhmacher is pleased to present a series of major oil paintings by French artist Michel Maly.

This summer I had the great pleasure to drive to Montélimar in the South of France and meet Michel Maly and his wife Jacqueline at their lovely country house, explore his paint imbued studio and choose a selection of wonderful paintings to bring back to Wimbledon for this exciting exhibition. The artist was born in Blois, France in 1936, started painting in 1955 and exhibiting in 1959. Since then he has shown regularly throughout Europe, America and the Far East. In 1968 he was awarded the Prix Fénéon by the University of Paris and in 2009 he was presented ‘La Médaille de la ville de Montélimar’. During his long career Michel has painted almost on a daily basis, “I paint because I love people”, has published four books and has had a film dedicated to his work. Although we have enjoyed a few of the artist’s works over the years we are now privileged to present this major solo UK exhibition of his recent oeuvres. This will include delightful views in New York, Tuscany, Venice and France, seascapes and still lifes and Michel’s unique and amusing café scenes in Paris. His paintings are to be found in numerous private and corporate collections and in various museums in France.

A special thanks to Vera Schuhmacher, representative and friend of the Malys, for her kind cooperation in organising this exhibition.
