Henri Malfrou-Savigny (French, 1895-1944) was a post-impressionist painter of landscapes and seascapes. He could be the son of Charles Malfroy, with whom he is often confused. He exhibited regularly in Paris, at the Salon of French Artists and of Independents. With Charles Malfroy, he painted the hillsides and ports of Bouches-du-Rhone and of Var. He also painted some Paris landscapes. (This Information provided by Ralph Blunt through Askart). He is a well-established and well-loved artist. A larger painting of his sold in September, 2016, for over $7,000.00. June, 2016 one sold in Paris for over $5.700.00. High auction price was $24,990 October, 2015. (No need for me to continue with other recent sales of $2000.00 to $4,000.00. ) This smaller gem is a wonderful size that "fits" size-wise anywhere. I have favorite artwork over my computer; in a kitchen nook; even in the guest powder room and our necessary rooms. Actually love to change paintings every so often. They seem to get better with age.
