Biography from Papillon Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Clement-Serveau was born in Paris in 1886.  He experienced all the revolutions in art in the 20th Century.  His early work was realistic in the tradition of the Postimpressionists but always with elements of cubist forms.

He was a student at l'Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.  He began exhibiting in 1905 at the Salon des Indépendants, and later at the Salon des Artistes Français where he won a bronze medal in 1921, silver medal in 1926, and a gold medal in 1929.  He exhibited in Greece in 1934 and 1935, and participated in collective exhibitions of French artists in London, United States, Canada and Sweden.

He was a friend of Louis Marcoussis, an early Cubist, and Clement-Serveau's style evolved into neo-Cubism.  His style of abstraction and use of color and planes made his paintings unique, with a mosaic-like quality.

Clement-Serveau continued to exhibit his paintings, and in 1937 designed murals for the French Pavilion of Tourism at the l'Exhibition Internationellle in Paris.  He was awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur.

Clement-Serveau also designed frescos, mosaics, stained glass, and bank notes for the Banque de France and several other countries.  He also illustrated several books, including novels by Colette, Duhamel and Manriac.

His paintings are in collections in many countries and in museums in Le Havre, Lille, and the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris.
