Biography

A. (AUGUSTE) HERBIN
1882 Quéivy (France) - 1960 Parijs (France)

Auguste Herbin was born in 1882 in Quievy in the north of France. He studied drawing at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lille between 1898 and 1901, before moving to Paris, where he worked in isolation for several years. He moved into the Bateau Lavoir studios in 1909, and there he met Picasso, George Braque and Juan Gris. Herbin's early work, such as Le Pont,1903, and especially those he sent to the Salon des Indépendants in 1906, illustrate the influence of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Later, after he encoutered the works of the Cubists in Bateau-Lavoir his style changes to a pure geometrical and abstract approach. Herbin's architectural approach and his use of colour has made his work widely know in teh international art world. A major retrospective was held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 1979. Herbin died in Paris in 1960
