The Famous French Collection

He was a draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor, but is known primarily as a painter.


Many of his finest works were created in the decade or so after 1906, when he developed a rigorous style that emphasised flattened forms and decorative pattern.


In 1917, he relocated to a suburb of Nice on the French Riviera, and the more relaxed style of his work during the 1920s gained him critical acclaim as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting.


After 1930, he adopted a bolder simplification of form.


Did you know?

When ill health in his final years prevented him from painting, he created an important body of work in the medium of cut paper collage.
