Jean Bazaine is born in Paris in 1904. While preparing a literature degree, he is a student of the sculptor Landowsksi at the school of Fine-Arts in Paris. In 1930, the young artist is showing his work in group exhibitions with Fautrier, Puni (Pougny), and Goerg and Gromaire whom he befriends. His first personal exhibition is organized in 1932; Pierre Bonnard encouraged him.Jean Bazaine visits . . .

These pages will undoubtedly make it possible for some of you to associate an image with its title or the other way round, for others it will be a good time to discover more on such and such artist. For the sake of confidentiality – the pieces being no longer available – we won't display neither their numbering or their price.
