Born in 1929 - France
Guy de Lussigny (30 August 1929 in Cambrai, northern France 30 August 1929 – 14 July 2001 in Paris) is a French painter of the school of geometric abstraction.
Guy de Lussigny started painting in 1950. At first a figurative painter, he soon followed in the footsteps of Mondrian and Malevitch. A pivotal encounter with Gino Severini, a founder of the Italian Futurist movement, occurred in 1955. Severini encouraged Lussigny to pursue his chosen path in geometric abstraction. The straight line, square format and colour come to dominate Lussingy's work. In 1956, he met the painter Auguste Herbin, a meeting which turned out to be equally important.
His works can be found in numerous public collections and museums in Valenciennes, Montbeliard, the Fondation Calderara, Fnac, Frac Ile de France, Macon, Mondriaanhuis, Musée Tavet-Delacour de Pontoise, Musée Matisse du Cateu-Cambrésis and, especially, in the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Cambrai, with 120 works from the André Le Bozec donation. In 1998, the Beaux-Arts Academy of the Institut de France awarded him the Dumas-Miller Prize.
