Maurice Utrillo (French, 1883-1955) La maison de Mimi Pinson sous la neige à Montmartre signed 'Maurice, Utrillo, V,' (lower right) and inscribed '-Montmartre-' (lower left) oil on canvas 46 x 55cm (18 1/8 x 21 5/8in). Painted circa 1940 Footnotes The authenticity of this work has kindly been confirmed by Monsieur Jean Fabris. Provenance Private collection, Italy. Exhibited Milan, Galleria Il Mappamondo, Maurice Utrillo - La città dipinta , 2007, no. 11. Literature P. Pétridès, L'oeuvre complet de Maurice Utrillo , Vol. III, Paris, 1969, no. 1370 (illustrated p. 47). La maison de Mimi Pinson sous la neige à Montmartre is an accomplished example of Maurice Utrillo's depictions of his beloved Montmartre. As one of the few Parisian artists to have been born there, Utrillo's oeuvre would largely be dedicated to translating its cobbled streets and stone walls into delicately nuanced compositions that convey his enduring affection for this bohemian quartier of Paris. As the illegitimate son of professional model and artist Marie-Clémentine Valadon, better known as Suzanne Valadon, Utrillo was encouraged to paint from a young age. Valadon nourished her son's early artistic skill by giving him postcards of the city from which to paint in his room, thereby initiating his interest in the Montmartre landscape with which he is most associated. Forced to move away from what his mother regarded as the unhealthy influence of Paris in 1921 to Lyon, Utrillo would continue to paint these familiar streets from memory or postcards. La maison de Mimi Pinson sous la neige à Montmartre shows a remarkably empty city scene, devoid of pedestrians and silently swathed in snow. Away from the busy boulevards and celebrated landmarks, the unassuming yet elevated setting is aptly chosen to convey a sense of perspective (a technique so typical in Utrillo's painting) with the northern slope of rue du Mont-Cenis falling away towards the heart of the city. Utrillo frequently depicted the house of Mimi Pinson in his paintings, illustrating the dwelling from differing angles through the changing seasons. Mimi Pinson was not in fact a real person but rather a popular character type in French fiction of the time, originally drawn from Alfred de Musset's poem of 1845 'Mademoiselle Mimi Pinson: Profil de grisette'. In early nineteenth century France the 'Mimi Pinson' character was associated with the word 'grisette' – a term which came to refer to young women often working as seamstresses or milliner's assistants, who frequented the bohemian artistic and cultural venues in Paris, particularly around Montmartre. These women often also worked as artist's models and were renowned for becoming the mistresses of their employers. Utrillo's mother, Suzanne Valadon, could certainly be associated with the 'Mimi Pinson' character. She was the model and mistress of both Renoir and Puvis de Chavannes (artists both reputed to be the possible father of Utrillo himself) and so it is fitting perhaps that Utrillo should be drawn time and again to this location, which in some respects held a special affinity with his own history. The creamy tones of the snow and the grey of the leaden sky in La maison de Mimi Pinson sous la neige à Montmartre vividly recreate the atmosphere of a wintery day, whilst Utrillo captures an everyday realism in details such as cracks in the buildings and mud on the streets. This emphasis on conveying the realism of the scene looks back to the period known as his époque blanche from 1909 - 1914 when the artist meticulously researched the tones of the house walls and mixed his paint with glue and plaster in order to obtain an accurate tone and texture on his canvas. Painted circa 1940, the influence of Impressionist artists such as Pissarro, Sisley and Cézanne, who Utrillo had first admired in the early years of his career, is still visible in the free, small brushstrokes which so deftly capture the light and atmosphere, but his development as an artist can be seen in the gradual softening of the black outlines which so clearly defined his earlier compositions. The contours of the present work are less definite and geometric, just as the boldly coloured pedestrians who walked his early streets have slowly disappeared.
