ANDRE RENOUX

French, Contemporary Painter

Renoux was born in 1939 in Oran, Algeria of French parents who were temporarily living in Algeria at that time.  Renoux lived in Nice, France as a youth and got his art training there at the Beaux Arts School of Art in Nice.  When he was about 25, he moved to Paris and his paintings immediately attracted the attention of collectors as well as gallery owners.

The paintings and lithographs of' Renoux capture the charm of Old Paris in a natural style charged with obvious affection.  His style is compared to that of Utrillo, who too was fascinated with Paris city-scapes. He paints not the grand architectural monuments, but the more intimate landmarks of daily life, the clock in the park, a kiosk in a city square, colorful shops, out-of-the-way bistros. Renoux's colors are warm with an engaging brightness that gives off a feeling of the presence of people about to emerge on the scene.  Details such as a merchants cart left immediately unattended add an awareness of the people who live on these streets.  Delighting in the design elements inherent in urban life, Renoux's respect for the formal composition elements of architecture lead him to eliminate such "distractions" as automobiles or leaves on trees.

Commemorative editions of his Paris scenes have been executed for French, President Valerie Giscard d'Estaing, who presents them as gifts to many visiting dignitaries.  In 1965 Renoux exhibited with Chagall and Moretti and has had showings with well-deserved acclaim in Rome, Switzerland, Belgium and. New York.  Our galleries are United States representatives of his works.

His life and work as an artist are chronicled in the recently published book Renoux Paints Paris.
