Constant Le Breton  (1895 - 1985)

He was born March 11, 1895 in Saint Germain des Pres in the Anjou region into a family of sailors from the Loire.  Studied in Nantes and Le Mans and was accepted at the School of Decorative Arts but unable to attend classes.  Mobilized in 1915, he fought in the war in the Dardanelles and the East.

After the armistice, he moved to Paris, devoted himself to engraving on wood and acquired a reputation as an illustrator of books.  He obtained a grant from the Blumenthal Foundation and befriended his elders Luce, Derain, Segonzac, and his contemporaries Antral, Belmondo, Brayer.  He established himself as a portraitist.  He painted portraits of Charles Dullin, Ingrid Bergman, Beatrice Bretty and many others.  He also painted landscapes, still lives and interior scenes.  

His works are solidly built, painted with sensitivity and nuance, a beautiful and serene expression of great joy.

Paris Museums have a large number of his works.  Several of his paintings, especially commission portraits are in private collections in France, the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, Greece.

Constant Le Breton died in Paris in February 1985.
