Gen Paul

Born in 1895 - France


Born in 1895 and died in 1975 in Paris, Eugene Paul, aka Gen Paul was a French painter. This artist made history in French expressionism with his gouaches, drawings, engravings and lithography.

In 1920's, he distanced himself from his friends Utrillo, Leprin and Génin in order to create his own form of expressionism, where movement and faces take up a leading role. In 1928, he participated in an exhibition at the Bing Gallery with artists like Picasso, Braque and Soutine.

In 1930's, exhausted due to a fast running life, the artist was on the verge of dying. This event lead him to a new artistic revolution, characterized by using bright colors, more obvious strokes and the artist treated a variety of themes.
