by Marcel Gromaire (1892 – 1971)
Dozens of books and thousands of articles have saluted this painter; even François Mauriac praised him to the skies. Early admired–the Kunstmuseum of Basel dedicated to him a retrospective as soon as 1933–then awarded the Carnegie Medal in 1952 and the Guggenheim Prize in 1956; Marcel Gromaire has left a powerful work, with a rich and skilful stroke. “His influence was considerable on younger generations” Jacques Brusse said in his famous Benezit Dictionary of Artists.
