ROGER BEZOMBES (French / 1913-1994)

Roger Bezombes was one of the great colourists of the twentieth century. He won the Grand Prix de Rome in 1936. His work pre-WWII was greatly influenced by Matisse, and by his friendship with Maurice Denis; his first show in 1938 at the Galerie Charpentier in Paris was a great success. After the war Roger Bezombes incorporated elements of Cubism into his style, in particular the use of collage as a structural tool. Bezombes is notable for his warm and open engagement with the cultures of the Middle East and of North- and sub-Saharan Africa. There is a whole room devoted to the art of Roger Bezombes in the Musée Réattu in Arles.
