MAURICE BRIANCHON (French / 1899-1979)

Maurice Brianchon was born in Fresnay-sur-Sarthe in 1899. He studied at the Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux and then at the École des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. He first exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in 1920, and was immediately elected as a member. From his student days, Brianchon was closely associated with Roland Oudot, and the two friends became central figures of the romantic group of post-Fauve colourists who exhibited as Peintres de la Réalité Poétique. Other members of this group included Jules Cavaillès, Roger Limouse, André Planson, Kostia Terechkovitch, Raymond Leguelt, and Christian Caillard. They were influenced by the Nabis and the Fauves, particularly Bonnard, Vuillard, and Matisse. Maurice Brianchon had a teaching atelier at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Among his students were Bernard Cathelin and André Brasilier.
