Adolphe Valette (1876–1942)
Valette was born in St Étienne, France, where his art is still barely known. However in England, particularly in Manchester, where he resided for many years and produced his most important works, he is renowned for two reasons: a remarkable series of Impressionist views of the city, and his influence on his best-known pupil, L. S. Lowry.
Despite his heavy teaching commitments, Valette produced a significant body of work, including paintings, drawings – both pastel and watercolour – engravings, etchings, and lithographs.
