Jean Helion Art

French, 1904-1987
Jean Hélion, pseudonym of Jean Bichier, is a French painter and engraver, born April 21, 1904 in Couterne and died October 27, 1987 in Paris. His complex artistic itinerary passed, a rare case, from abstract art sometimes close to Piet Mondrian1 to figurative art. He helped introduce abstract art to the United States. Jean Hélion has always been able to express in his works his youthful spirit through the vivacity of the colors and the rhythm of his compositions. Hailed in the 1960s by the new generation of painters, that of Gilles Aillaud or Eduardo Arroyo, he is today considered the precursor of the New German Fauves of the 1970s and the figurative ones of the 1980s. above all his work of the 1930s and 1950s.

Floating Figures undated lithograph, artist proof (E.A) & signed by the artist 22 x 15,5 x 0,1 cm sold without frame about Jean Hélion (April 21, 1904 – October 27, 1987) Jean Hélion was born on April 21, 1904, in Couterne, France. He entered the Institut Industriel du Nord in Lille to study chemistry in 1920 but left the following year to become an architectural apprentice in Paris.
