|It is seems so fitting to be holding this exhibition at Blenheim Palace. Writing the foreword to Anne Singer’s book Paul Maze The Lost Impressionist, published in 1983, the French Ambassador to the Court of St James, former Director General of French Museums, H.E. Monsieur Emmanuel de Margerie augured a time when the work of Maze would be publicly celebrated, writing:
“Some time in the future – in some museum or other collection – people will come across his soldiers marching past Buckingham Palace, the splendour of a Coronation or an Opening of Parliament, and think, ‘This is our England. This is the work of a French painter who was at the same time an English painter.’ How Paul Maze would have cherished such a compliment.”
A Blenheim Palace ticket is required to view this exhibition, or it is free for Annual Pass holders, for more information please visit Blenheim Palace.
