Albert Marquet

Marquet, Albert (älbĕrˈ märkāˈ) [key], 1875–1947, French painter. In 1894 he met Matisse and later became associated with fauvism. His exuberantly colored figure studies are clearly fauvist. Marquet was a gifted draftsman. Many of his later landscapes and port scenes, painted with great clarity, are in American museums.
