Born in Epernay, France in 1907, Roger Worms studied in Paris at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs, where he would later teach. Graduating with a keen enthusiasm, Worms admired the paintings of Jules Cavailles and Maurice Brianchon and emulated their block coloring technique. During the 1930s he exhibited at many of France’s premier art institutions including the Salons Tuileries, d’Automne and Independants. After moving to Brittany in the mid-1930s he commenced painting the pure landscape and marine subjects for which he is remembered. This beautiful example can be dated to this period and encapsulates his ideals as an artist. Other examples of is work are housed at, amongst others, the museums of Amiens, Montpelier, Oran and at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.
