Label TextSInce the early years of the twentieth century, the painter and graphic artist Andre' Dunoyer de Segonzac has been an independent figure in the midst of art movements, and yet an artist who was fundamentally, unmistakeably, of the French school. As early as 1910, his individuality appreared in his exhibited works, setting him apart from the many "isms" of those revolutionary years. Within his individual style, which became firmly established by about 1920, there are just the echoes of Cezanne, Manet and Courbet that relate Segonzac to the main stream of French painting. His subjects are presented with a sense of both intimacy and order; his color both sensuous and controlled; and his technique painterly and fresh. Andre' Dunoyer de Segonzac was born in Boussy-Saint-Antoine, France, in 1884. He began his studies at the Paris Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1901, and by 1906 was working independently. In those years of artistic foment, he was with the independents from 1911, and a member of the Salon d'Automne from 1913. His early direct influences of Impressionism and Cubism were rapidly assimilated into his own style. Source: Bulletin, March 1967.
