Although initially a figurative painter, Youla Chapoval quickly became one of the leading lights of French abstraction. He died at the age of 32. There was a retrospective of the art of Youla Chapoval at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1964, and another at the Musée d’art moderne, Villeneuve d’Ascq, in 1991.
