Chatou, nr Paris, 17 June 1880; d Garches, 8 Sept 1954
French painter, sculptor, illustrator, stage designer and collector. He
was a leading exponent of FAUVISM. In early 1908 he
destroyed most of his work to concentrate on tightly
constructed landscape paintings, which were a subtle
investigation of the work of Cézanne. After World War I his
work became more classical, influenced by the work of such
artists as Camille Corot. In his sculpture he drew upon his
knowledge and collection of non-Western art.
