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.

Born with the name Jeanne Caffier in Cande (Anjou), Jeanne Rij-Rousseau became an Important French cubist painter and philosopher. In 1890, she arrived in Paris and became friends with leading artists including Paul Signac and Edouard Vuillard.

Before she began work on a canvas, she followed a method of developing the complete scheme for each work, using scientific principles of color, light and geometry. She was especially interested in what she called "vibrisme", which was the visual phenomenon of "color wave vibrations"---in other words, the counterpart to sound waves in music. It was a concept that became important to Futurists, especially Le Fresnay, Delaunay and Jacques Villon, and she continued to experiment with this theory through her artwork and influenced her good friends, Juan Gris, Georges Braque and Ferdinand Leger .

She exhibited regularly from 1910 through the late 1930s, and died in 1956 in Savigny sur Braye, France.
