Henry Malfroy was born in Martiques, France on 15 January 1895. Malfroy painted coastal scenes and Mediterranean ports from Bouches-du-Rhone to le Var.
His name and the similarity of subjects have led to him being confused with the artist from Lyon, Charles Malfroy, who may well have been his father.
Henry Malfroy exhibited regularly in Paris at the Salon des Artists Francais, and the Salon des Independants. He also painted some Paris landscapes.
Works by Malfroy appeared at auction as early as 1923; Paris â€˜Canal at Martiquesâ€™ and continue to be very popular today.
