Maurice (Valadon) Utrillo
(1883 - 1955)
Maurice (Valadon) Utrillo was active/lived in France. Maurice Utrillo is known for landscape and cityscene genre painting, stage design.
Born in Paris with the name of Maurice Valadon, Maurice Utrillo
specilized in painting city scenes, especially of his beloved
Paris. It is said that he is one of the most copied and forged
artist in history.
He was the son of teenage model, Marie-Clementine Valade, who painted under the name of Suzanne Valadon, and
perhaps an amateur painter name Boissy. Unsure of the father,
Valadon reportedly took him around among some of her male acquaintances
including Renoir, all whom denied parentage, and so she named him after
Miguel Utrillo, who was sympathetic but likely not the father. Among
the artists for whom Valadon posed were Berthe Morisot, Toulouse
Lautrec, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
