LOUIS VALDO-BARBEY (French / 1883-1965)

Louis Valdo-Barbey (also known as Valdo Barbey) was a major figure in the School of Paris. Born and brought up in Switzerland, but naturalized French, Valdo-Barbey travelled to Spain, England, Romania, Finland, the Antilles, and Egypt before WWI. Louis Valdo-Barbey is remembered today not just for his art, but for his important memoir of WWI, Soixante jours de guerre en 1914, written after he was invalided out of the army after being seriously injured on 22 December 1914. He was born Valdo Louis Barbey in Velleyres in Switzerland, and worked both as Valdo Barbey and as Valdo-Barbey, the name under which he is listed in the standard dictionary of artists, Bénézit. Valdo-Barbey was taught by Georges Desvallières and Eugène Burnand. He exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants from 1906, at the Salon d'Automne from 1909-1938, and at the Salon des Tuileries from 1923. Valdo-Barbey was a close friend and artistic associate of André Dunoyer de Segonzac, Jean-Louis Boussingault, and Luc-Albert Moreau. He had a studio in the rue des Saintes-Pères, with a magnificent view over the Seine and the Louvre. We have two major series of prints by Valdo-Barbey - his colour lithographs of Flanders and Sicily, and his etched studies of ports From London to Venice via New York.
