Born in France in 1876, he ignored the boundaries of national frontiers and arrived in Manchester in 1905. He introduced impressionism to the city and from 1908 to 1913 produced his famous Manchester-scapes. They captured, in the subtle hues of Valettes impressionist palette, the atmospheric mood of streets, squares, waterways, and industrial buildings shrouded in fog and pollution.

As teacher at the Manchester School of Art, Valette tutored L.S. Lowry, who acknowledges a debt of gratitude to the artist for more than a decades instruction. The geographical vagaries of Valettes life brought him back to his native France in 1928 where he continued to paint until his death in 1942. This fascinating and long awaited book displays Valettes finest work and his unique talents to splendid effect. Cecilia Lyon at last gives this acclaimed painter the recognition he deserves as an important player in the extensive panorama of early 20th-century British and French painting.

The only complete work of reference on the life and work of Adolphe Valette, this charming book is a feast for the eyes and full of hitherto unknown facts about this remarkable man.
