Biography of Artist


French 19th 20th Century

He was born on May 22nd 1862 in Lyons and was a painter of seascapes.

More specifically Malfroy had an instantly recognisable style and he spent most of his career painting coastal scenes and Mediterranean ports from Bouches-du-Rhone to the Var.

Henry Malfroy (or Malfroy-Savigny) painted similar subject matter to Charles in a similar style and their work is sometimes confused. It is widely thought that Henry was the son of Charles.

He was a prolific artist and his work is held in many private collections throughout the world-typical titles were “Small Harbour on the inland sea at Berre” and “Fishing boats in Martigues Harbour” (both oil on canvas).
