RICHARD BELLIAS (French / 1921-1974)

Richard Bellias, also known as André Richard-Bellias, was born in Paris in 1921. He studied at the free academies of Paris, notably under Othon Friesz at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Around 1946 Richard Bellias met the printmaker Édouard Goerg, who was a formative influence on his art. Goerg taught Bellias printmaking techniques, and introduced him to work of Francis Gruber. In 1951 Bellias won the Prix de la Jeune Peinture, and in 1959 the Premier Prix des Amateurs d'Art. He was a member of the Salons d'Automne and des Indépendants, and also exhibited with the Salon de la Jeune Peinture and the Salon des Peintres Témoins de leur Temps. Richard Bellias died in 1974.
