Painter. Nudes, landscapes, portraits, still-lifes.

Alexandre Blanchet worked initially in Paris.

This similarity is intensified by his technique of painting parallel lines in different shades of the same colour, a feature of ...

Boudon trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His painting is sometimes a vividly coloured and expressionist abstraction, but most often he paints figures with deformed bodies, which are not dissimilar to Picasso, with enormous heads and hands, and motifs repeated in an obsessive way.
