About The Poster: André Dunoyer de Segonzac was born in Boussy-Saint-Antoine (Essonne) July 7, 1884. After his schooling at high school Henri IV, he attended classes at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris.
His first drawings were published in 1908 in The Great Review and The Witness. Nearly indifferent to contemporary aesthetic revolutions, Dunoyer de Segonzac undertakes, with some contemporary artists, to revive Gustave Courbet's realism by performing still lifes, nudes, landscapes, in a thick paste and masonry .
In one of his letters to the painter Maurice Boitel, he wrote: "I have not forgotten the heroic period of the independents - when we were grouped around Paul Signac, the charming and valiant Maximilien Luce - in these barracks where the living and authentic Art was grouped outside the academic formulas - or literary and systematic tendencies - which were to lead to this abstract aesthetic of which the painting dies.
Poster is is overall very good condition with some edge wear. Please see photos. Ready to frame.
