His style of painting was deeply rooted in Impressionism and the French tradition of painting ‘en plein air’, but England was to prove a constant source of enrichment and gave his work much of its subject matter. Maze particularly enjoyed capturing London views, still life, the English countryside and the English Season – race meetings, the Trooping the Colour, Henley Eights and Cowes Week.
The exhibition will feature paintings by both men from the Duke of Marlborough’s collection; the collection of toy soldiers by Lucotte which Paul Maze had inherited from his father and gifted to the nine year old John Spencer-Churchill (11th Duke of Marlborough), alongside loans from the Estate of Paul Maze, private collections, personal effects and archive material.
The exhibition will be displayed in the newly refurbished Palace Exhibition Suite, in association with Zuleika Gallery.
