Charles Lapicque

Born in: 1898

France

Born in 1898 and died in 1988, Charles Lapicque was a French painter from the Nouvelle Ecole in Paris. Adopted son of a professor in General Physiology, Louis Lapicque, whose name he took, Charles Lapicque learned piano, drawing and violin during his childhood. In 1917, Charles Lapicque did his service and left to do field artillery, where he acquired a knowledge on horses. After the war, Charles Lapicque joined Ecole centrale des arts et manufacture in Paris, where he specialized in industrial design. In 1920, he painted his first landscapes. He began a career as an engineer in the electrical energy distribution near Lisieux before settling down in Paris in 1924. Charles Lapicque participated in choir and painted on Sundays. This is when he developed a strong passion for the two arts that led him to research projections in space. Jeanne Bucher noticed his abstract work and asked him to display his work in the gallery. In 1928, the artist abandoned his engineering profession and the following year he obtained his first solo exhibition. Charles Lapicque went back to university to learn the physical sciences. After his doctorate, he became assistant trainer with Maurice Curie and rubbed shoulders with many physicists. This environment led him to research color perception. To develop his theory, he joined Ecole supérieure d'optique. Later he participated in several seminars where he talked about his research on blue and red in Art. In 1936 he met Jean Wahl, who made him embark on a philosophical and aesthetic reflection. His work was gradually recognized by institutions and he received an order of 5 large murals for the Palais de la découverte in Paris, one of them received the medal of honor at the Universal Exhibition in 1937. He experimented with granite sculptures along with primitive arts, all the while learning new musical instruments. In 1939, Charles Lapicque joined the National Center for Scientific Research, where he was responsible for studying night vision and camouflage. In 1941, he participated in the first avant-garde exhibition of Jean Bazaine and the exhibition of today's painters at the Galerie de France, the Nazi government condemned it. He made a series of paintings on the liberation of Paris and the Galerie Louis Carré displayed them in 1946. Charles Lapicque received the Raoul Dufy award at the Venice Biennale in 1953, which led him to discover Venice for a year. Then the artist went to Rome, Greece, Spain, Holland and eventually toured France from 1975 to 1980. He received the National Painting Prize in 1979.
