André Beaudin

André Beaudin

(1895-1979) French

Beaudin was born in Mennecy and known for his particular attachment to his native Ile-de-France. He studied at the School of Decorative Arts in Paris and participated in close collaborations with friends, including Juan Gris, Max Jacob, and Paul Eluard, knowing how to surround himself and seduce the greatest artists, writers and poets of his time. Picasso said that "the lack of knowledge of Beaudin's work constitutes one of the greatest injustices of our time.” In 1962, Beaudin was awarded in the Grand Prix National des Arts and had a long series of exhibitions in France and abroad until 1970.
