Our selection of works of art by André Lhote (1885-1962)

Works of art by André Lhote (1885-1962) a french painter, engraver, illustrator, art theorician, and teacher. He is one of the Cubism representatives. André Lhote spent 10 years training in the workshop of a sculptor/decorator in Bordeaux, and also attended sculpture courses at the Fine Art School of Bordeaux. Reading Diderot, Delacroix and Baudelaire encouraged him to paint. He settled in Paris in 1907. Starting from 1918, he was teaching in several accademies, until the foundation of his own accademy in 1922. André Lhote joined the cubist movement in 1912, but rejected in the meantime everything that was too abstract: he always tried to preserve the link to classical painting. He wanted to be in the modernity, not as in a rupture, but as in the continuation of tradition. His works are present in a lot of international collections such as: Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, Tate Britain in London, Fine Art Museum in Budapest, or Vancouver Art Gallery in Vancouver...
