Biography   Jean Fautrier

Jean Fautrier (May 16, 1898 - July 21, 1964) was a French painter and sculptor. He was one of the most important practitioners of Tachisme*.

He was born in Paris. Given his unwed mother's surname, he was raised by his grandmother until her death in 1908, when he went to live with his mother in London.  In 1912 he studied at the Royal Academy of Art*. Unsatisfied by instruction he thought too rigid, he left to study briefly at the Slade School*, which he also found disappointing.  The works he saw in the Tate Gallery* made a far greater impression on him; he especially admired the paintings of J. M. W. Turner.

 He first exhibited his paintings at the Salon d'Automne* in 1922 and at the Fabre Gallery in 1923.
