Henri - Maurice CAHOURS

French painter born in 1889 in Paris, died in Cagnes-sur-Mer in 1974.

Henry Maurice Cahors studied at the Beaux-Arts of Amiens, at the same time he was student at the high school.

Arrived at Montmartre in 1911, he lived there until 1965, when he retired to the south of France. He frequented the microcosm of Montmartre and was friend with Marcel Aymé who wrote him a beautiful text honoring his works. 

Painter in the line of Marquet, in addition to the streets Montmartre he liked to represent, he had devoted himself to the Breton ocean views; he had bought, about 1955, a house at Les Petites Dalles, in Normandy, where Monet had lived in 1880.

In 1976, the Museum Château de l'Emperi in Salon-de-Provence devoted a retrospective to him, then the Museum of Montmartre put him in the spotlight during a solo exhibition in 1987.
