A Tribute to Michel Henry (1928-2016)

August 24th, 2017|Comments Off on A Tribute to Michel Henry (1928-2016)

Born in 1928, Michel Henry, French painter and member of the Salon d'Automne, was known for his compositions of still lives, bouquets of flowers and landscapes. At his arrival to the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris (Paris National School of Fine arts), he distanced itself thanks to his joyful and colored paintings. He displayed them on four continents, and regularly at the Salon d'Automne. He received in 1981 the Legion of Honor, and had many admirers, such as Jacques Chirac, Jeanne Moreau or Line Renaud. From 1983, he really put a lot into the organization of the Salon d'Automne and occupied numerous posts, from General Secretary to president of the "Book" section, up to the vice-presidency in 1994. He passed away on Christmas morning 2016.. The Salon d'Automne will pay a tribute to the famous painter at its next edition. Some of his paintings will be displayed. Aurore Alamendas (1993)

A Tribute to André Vignoles

August 22nd, 2017|Comments Off on A Tribute to André Vignoles

It saddens us to announce the death of our member and friend, André Vignoles, died on July 15 2017. Faithful member of the Salon d’Automne since 1948, he served it with his great loyalty, during many years, until he became the dean of our Board of directors. André Vignoles' painting is clear, cheerful, delicate, but also wide and structured at the same time, as exact representation of himself. A tribute will be returned to him during the 2018 Salon d’Automne.   The artist in front of his work, La neige fondante aux trois pies Landscape   Les blés à Montfort l'Amaury
