Hide Profile

Jean Hélion (April 21, 1904 – October 27, 1987) was a French painter whose abstract work of the 1930s established him as a leading modernist. His midcareer rejection of abstraction was followed by nearly five decades as a figurative painter. https://www.nytimes.com/1987/10/30/obituaries/jean-helion-abstract-and-representational-artist.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Hélion
