AUGUSTE HERBIN (French / 1882-1960)

Auguste Herbin was born in Quiévy near the Belgian border, the son of a weaver. He studied at the Beaux-Arts, Lille, before moving to Paris. Auguste Herbin moved rapidly from post-Impressionism to Fauvism to Cubism (under the direct influence of Picasso, Braque, and Juan Gris) to Constructivism. Auguste Herbin was one of the earliest French artists to evolve into pure abstraction, alongside Hélion, Delaunay, and Arp, and influenced by Kandinsky and Mondrian. In the 1930s Herbin was part of the group Abstraction-Création, and its successor, the collective Cercle et Carré. There was a major retrospective at the Guggenheim, New York, in 1979.
