Auguste Herbin (1882 - 1960)
The son of a workman, he was born in a small village near the Belgian border on April 29, 1882. This background is reflected in the northern French artist's painting with its rational approach and explicit working class character.
Before settling in Paris, where he first joined the Impressionists and later the Fauves, Herbin attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Lille from 1900 onwards. His studio was situated directly next to Braqu (showing 500 of 4634 characters).
