Biography   Jean Helion


Helion was born in 1904 in Couterne, Orne, France.  Before World War II he was considered one of the masters of abstract art which for him was the "idiom of clarity".  Helion lived in the US for four years, then returned to France at the beginning of World War II.  He was held as a prisoner of war in Germany in 1940-42, escaped in 1942 and fled to US.  Then he abandoned pure abstraction and became a painter of everyday life.  In 1946 he returned to Paris, where he eliminated all vestiges of abstraction.   

Written and compiled by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher from Laguna Woods, California.
