This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Roger Vieillard was born in Mans and classically educated in Paris. Besides being a noted international tennis player, he worked as a meteorologist in the army in 1930. In the early 1930s he began to make wire sculptures, as Calder had done earlier and, in 1934, he met Stanley William Hayter who showed him how to use the burin to create an active line in space. He began working in the evenings at Atelier 17 and formed a closed friendship with Hayter and Joseph Hecht.

Vieillard married American artist Anita de Caro in 1938 and began working in his own studio producing illustrated books while continuing to exhibit with Atelier 17. In 1940 he was conscripted into the army, working as a meteorologist in the French Army.

Over the next forty years he continued to create prints, both as unique artworks and as illustrations for his own Livres d'artiste. Vieillard created 332 prints and his work is represented in museums in France and the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
