Biography from Papillon Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Lucien Roudier was born in Marseilles; he worked under the name Eller.  He lived most of his life in Marseilles; his works depict the life of this large Mediterranean port city.  Nightlife, street life, the elegant nightclubs, sailor bars, prostitutes, and Gypsy street musicians were among his favorite subjects.

Eller was a laureate of l'École des Beaux-Arts de Marseille.  He was a member of Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.

His style and technique was purely modern in the tradition of Von Dongen and Rouault.  His imagery is powerful; his expressive style was intended to capture the romantic and the desperate.  His first paintings appeared around 1914.  When he came to Paris after World War One,  he witnessed the Jazz bars with the Black musicians, circuses, and nightclubs, and these became the direction of his artistic adventure.

In Paris, Eller exhibited at Galerie Devambez in Paris, the Salons des Indépendants, and at the Salon Humoristes.

Maybe because he died at such a young age, possibly in World War Two, his work fell into obscurity, but in 1956 a collection of more than seventy paintings, gouaches and watercolors were sold at auction in Nice.  Paul Reboux wrote the preface of the sale.
