Biography  
Andre Lhote


A French sculptor and painter, Andre Lhote worked in modernist styles including Fauvism and Cubism and was part of a group of revolutionaries including Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia and Jacques Villon.

He was born in Bordeaux and as a twelve-year old apprenticed to a sculptor and furniture maker and learned to work in wood.  The next year, 1898, he enrolled in The Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux and studied decorative sculpture.  During this time, he began painting, and in 1905, much admiring Paul Gaughin and Paul Cezanne, set up his own studio for painting.  In 1910, he had his first one-man exhibition, which was held in Bordeaux at the Galerie Druet.  By 1914, he had moved to Paris.
