Jean Helion (1904–1987) is a fascinating artist from many points of view. An architectural draftsman soon converted to abstract painting, he became a leading member of the international Abstraction-Creation group in the early 1930's. After the death of his close friend Theo van Doesburg, he took abstraction to New York, where he lived on and off from 1932 to 1946, and to Britain, especially in the years 1933–37 when many avant-garde artists took refuge there.

Book Description Paul Holberton Publishing, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Jean Helion (1904 - 1987) is a fascinating artist from many points of view. An architectural draughtsman soon converted to abstract painting, he became a leading member of the international Abstraction-Creation group in the early 1930s. After the death of his friend Theo van Doesburg he took abstraction to New York, where he advised the avantgarde collector A.E. Gallatin on purchases for his Gallery of Living Art, a crucial influence on the early phases of the developing New York School. During the years 1933 - 37 he was also in close contact with Ben Nicholson and other avantgarde artists who took refuge in Britain at that time. He certainly has a significant place in the history of modernism between the wars. Even more interesting is the direction Helion s art subsequently took, although it was against the trend in returning to figuration. Looking back, one can see that he was one of the strongest and best artists painting in the 1950s, who is due for reappraisal. In 1940 Helion returned from New York to France, in order to enlist. As soon as he was mobilized he was captured, but escaped in 1942 (and wrote a book about it, They Shall Not Have Me, 1943). He never returned to America after 1946. After the war he evolved a unique language of painting, employing people-objects that are both constructivist and naturalistic to a varying degree - his own language of signs populated by characteristic figures such as shopwindow dummies, newspaper readers and startling nudes. Helion is a key figure in the development of abstraction on both sides of the Atlantic and the Channel between Picasso and Pollock. This book is the first in English on the artist for some thirty years. It accompanies a retrospective commemorating the hundredth anniversary of his birth at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. Authors include Didier Ottinger, curator at the Pompidou, Matthew Gale, writing on Helion s English connections, and Debra Bricker Balken, on the American links. Seller Inventory # BTE9781903470275
