André Bauchant. Catalogue Raisonné
2 volumes: 640, 48 pp. Text in French and English.1997 illustrations, mostly in color.
André Bauchant (1873-1958) is one of those French artists long known as "naive painters" for whom the
term "modern primitives" would be much more appropriate. Besides landscapes of the Touraine countryside
and pictures of flowers and birds, he painted poetic and mythical visions. A horticulturist by profession, he
did not embark on his career as a painter until he was 46. His work is marked by his close affinity with nature
and his passion for ancient mythologies, In 1921 Bauchant exhibited for the first time at the Salon
d'Automne in Pans. where he came to the attention of Amédée Ozenfant and Le Corbusier, who became
Bauchant's mentor and a passionate collector of his work, In 1927 Sergei Diaghilev, the founder and managerof the Ballets Russes, commissioned him to do the stage design for the ballet Apollon musagète by Igor
Stravinsky; the work was first performed in 1928. In 1948 the Galerie Charpentier in Paris organized the first
retrospective of his work.
Andre Bauchant's position in the shadow of his far more famous fellow-painter Henri Rousseau is unjustified.
For the first time, this catalogue raisonné offers a comprehensive overview of Bauchant's art, and thus
provides the basis for a re-evaluation.
