Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Albert Gleizes (8 December 1881, Paris - 23 June 1953), was a French painter. Born Albert L on Gleizes and raised in Paris, he was the son of a fabric designer who ran a large industrial design workshop. He was also the nephew of L on Comerre, a successful portrait painter who won the 1875 Prix de Rome. The young Albert Gleizes did not like school and often skipped classes to idle away the time writing poetry and wandering through the nearby Montmartre cemetery. Finally, after completing his secondary schooling, Gleizes spent four years in the French army then began pursuing a career as a painter, primarily doing landscapes. Initially influenced by the Impressionists, he was only twenty-one years of age when his work titled La Seine Asni res was exhibited at the Soci t Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1902. The following year he was part of the first Salon d'Automne and soon came under the influence of Fernand L ger, Robert Delaunay, Jean Metzinger and Henri Le Fauconnier.show more
