About

Jean Carzou Venezia 1973 lithography on the so-called Dosabiki Masashi which is Japanese handmade paper. The Art work is numbered XXXIX/C, 39/100, and signed. It can be shipped with or without the frame. Carzou was born Karnik Zouloumian (Armenian) in Aleppo, Syria to an Armenian family. Carzou later created his name from the first syllables of his name and surname, and added a Parisian nickname, “Jean”. He was educated in Cairo, Egypt before moving to Paris in 1924 to study architecture. He started working as a theater decorator but quickly realized he preferred drawing and painting. In 1938, more than a 100 exhibitions of his works were organized in Paris, in the French provinces and abroad. In 1949, he received the coveted Hallmark prize. In 1952, he created costumes and sceneries for Les Indes Galantes of Rameau at the Opéra de Paris. He continued with Le Loup (1953) for Les Ballets of Roland Petit, Giselle (1954) and Athalie (1955) at the Opéra and La Comédie française. Carzou was elected a member of the Institute de France, Académie des beaux-arts, succeeding in the seat left vacant by the death of painter Jean Bouchaud in 1977. He was also awarded the National Order of Merit of France. A Carzou museum exists in the town of Dinard (Brittany).
