Genevieve Claisse

Biography from Auctionata

Genevieve Claisse was born in 1935, in Quievy, France. She studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In the late 1950's, Genevieve worked as an assistant to the painter Auguste Herbin. Genevieve's geometric-abstract work went through various creative phases. Her early works showed sharp triangular shapes in fragile compositions. Later, her work is characterized by large colored circle shapes, and black and white line structures. During the 1980's, Genevieve reduced her compositions to precisely executed and sensitively balanced compositions, making use of some few lines and color forms.

Biography from Galerie Bassenge, Berlin
Geneviève Claisse studied at the École de Beaux-Arts in Paris. She assisted in 1959 in her great uncle Auguste Herbin's studio and there formed their very own geometric style form. Since 1961 she exhibited regularly in the Galerie Denise René.
