Maurice Henri Mazeilie (French 1924-2021).
On heavy artist's watercolour paper, a coastal scene with figures relaxing on the beach and a sailing boat on the horizon. One dominant figure is wearing a large sunhat. Super coastal watercolour and graphite, most likely to be painted in Brittany where Mazeilie spent a lot of time in a studio he had there.
This one is unsigned but is part of a large collection of his work purchased in Paris. It is from a sheaf of work on identical paper, some of which was dated roughly 2009-2019, so among his last works.
Sheet measures 23 x 30.5 cm.
This will look super in a mount and framed under glass. Framing and mounting is a very personal choice so we are selling it "in the raw" just as it arrived to us.

Born in Clichy, Hauts-de-Seine, Paris in early 1924, Mazeilie painted prolifically covering landscapes, coastal scenes in Brittany where he had a studio, Parisian landscapes and architecture, and portraiture. He departed for the USA in 1957, returning to France briefly for a few months in 1958, then arriving back in early 1959 to settle in San Diego California where he applied for naturalisation and became a longstanding figure in the artist's centre at Spanish Village in San Diego between approximately 1967-1974. He had married in San Diego in 1964 to a young lady of 27, when he was 40 at the time. In the late 1970's he returned to France and continued to paint and sketch right up to 2019 (some of his work is dated). His gentle, impressionist style makes his work very easy to live with.

MastheadArt is run by Jo Eveleigh, an art dealer for 14 years commercially, a private collector prior to developing the business, operating from the leafy Cotswolds with regular sojourns in Devon and Derbyshire. Her favourite finds are studio collections of hoarded art, producing gems for the re-sale market from years of sketch collections and work which the artist never brought to the marketplace. Carrying antique stock right through to contemporary work, her favourite years are the fifty years of greatest cultural swings in Britain, between the 1920s and 1970s.

A veteran of the car industry, and having lived in various parts of the UK, Jo is now thoroughly enjoying saving great pictures for the nation. Her extensive stocklist bears testament to the fact that Jo always says she cannot walk away from a great picture. Lots of her stock is eminently suitable for creating salon wall arrangements, smaller mounted works which make wonderfully quirky space fillers.

Having had a gallery in previous years, Jo now enjoys the flexibility of selling online, through art fairs, and at a small number of retail outlets throughout the year. Viewings of any item can take place at her permanent gallery wall space at Betty and Beatties Vintage Interiors in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, where an amount of her stock is in display but any item seen online can be taken there for viewing and purchase. If you are close to any of her regular trips to Devon and Derbyshire, she is always pleased to try and meet up at a suitable venue to facilitate viewings too.
