Jean René Bazaine, Abstract, 1957
Jean-René Bazaine was born in Paris in 1904 and was raised surrounded by the evolution of the avant-garde. While completing a literature degree, he also studied under a sculptor, Paul Landowsksi, at the School of Fine-Arts in Paris. By 1930 he was beginning to show his work in group exhibitions. Bazaine’s first solo show was organised in 1932; he was encouraged by artist Pierre Bonnard, who was supportive throughout his career.
In 1949 Bazaine held his first solo exhibition at Galerie Maeght who remained his dealers thereafter. He showed pieces made in Paris during the post-war years. The work from this time is lyrical and sensitive, using a wide range of colours to create great richness. In his work, Bazaine explored many varied techniques. He experimented with gouache and watercolours, then focused on engraving and lithography. Bazaine also worked on large scale pieces such as tapestries, mosaics and stained glass, which were commissioned in churches all over France.
