Vincent Manago was a French artist, born in Toulon in 1880. He was very popular in Marseilles in the early 1900’s.

He migrated to North Africa but later returned to France and painted landscape views and street scenes. His work was shown at the Foire internationale de Marseille and at the Exposition Coloniale des Paysages d’Afrique et de Provence. He specialised in landscape, marine and genre paintings of the Mediterranean coast (Port de Martiques, La Rochelle, Venice) and in Orientalist painting. The latter showed the influence of his stay in Tunisia and Algeria on his art.

He often also used scenes depicted on postcards as inspiration for his paintings. One such postcard, Négresse pétrissant la Galette dans la Guessâa (Collections ND. Phot., Librairie d’Amico, Tunis) was used for his 1903 painting of a street scene of a young woman sorting through grains in a bowl. At least four different versions of this painting were made, one of which is in the Musée des beaux-arts, Marseille.

In addition to being a painter, Manago also worked as a decorator of several private residences in Tunis and Alger. His oldest son Dominique Manago, born in Tunis in 1902, also became a painter and so did his youngest son Armand, born in Paris in 1913, who changed his artist name to A.M. Guérin. Vincent Manago lived in Paris until his death on 30 June 1936.

Molly and Maud's specialise in beautiful, interesting and unusual decorative antiques and art.  The business is run by mother and daughter team Karen and Chloe. Karen's passion for interior design and the arts inspired Chloe from a young age. They travel extensively, acquiring their stock which is displayed in their showroom, online and at fairs around the UK. They regularly ship items worldwide.

In 2013 whilst hunting for premises for their expanding stock, they realised that the orchard behind Karen's house was a perfect starting point for them, but it already had two resident pet lambs named 'Molly and Maud'.  A new home was quickly found for them in a neighbouring field, a wooden building was then purchased and so began 'Molly and Maud's Place'. In 2016 they expanded further by building a new showroom on the premises.

The business is based in the village of Kirk Hammerton in North Yorkshire, midway between York and Harrogate just four miles from the A1(M).

The showroom is open every Saturday 10-4, at other times visitors are very welcome by appointment.
