LUCIEN LÉVY-DHURMER
Lucien Levy-Dhurmer was born in 1895 in Algeria and died in the Yvelines in 1953.
In 1879, Levy-Dhurmer joined the ‘Ecole Communale Supérieure de Dessin et de Sculpture' in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. He began his apprenticeship with Vion and Wallet. He began his career as a lithographer and then joined the famous ceramist Clément Massier's factory.
In 1900 he received a bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition. In 1902, Lucien Levy-Dhurmer was awarded the ‘Légion d'Honneur'.
Throughout his career, the artist exhibited his works at prestigious events such as the Salon d'Automne, the Salon des Artistes français, the ‘Salon des Peintres Oriental­istes', the ‘Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts' and the ‘Salon des Pastellistes français'. In addition, monographic exhibi­tions are organized in many galleries such as the Charpentier, Georges Petit, J.Allard and Devambez galleries. The Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris devoted a splendid retrospective to him in 1952.
The success of the artist is immediate, thanks to his perfect mastery of the pastel technique. His paintings offer a vaporous and fascinating vision. His gaze on painting focuses on poetry and an allegorical reper­toire. His work resembles symbolist painters because he perfectly masters the spiritual and technical values of this artistic current.
