André Beaudin was a notable French painter who’s contribution to Modern Art is widely recognized. By the 1930s, cubism had dominated much of the painting world, and had shifted from radical to formulaic. Beaudin was infamous for pushing back against the limitations of cubism, by instead creating his own language of painting using lyrical and even figurative abstract techniques. He was regarded as one of the leading painters at the École de Paris. He exhibited widely throughout his lifetime and was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix National des Arts in 1962 in recognition of his contribution to Modern Art. Beaudin’s prolific work is held by a myriad of prestigious institutions such as the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Centre National d’Art Contemporain in Paris, as well as museums in Grenoble, Marseille, Baltimore, Caracas, Dortmund, Luxembourg, Santiago, São Paulo, Stockholm and Vienna.View The Legends of Modern Art Collection & Read the Bassett Family Story
