Charles Lapicque

Charles Lapicque

(1898-1988) French

Lapicque was a French painter whose work played a significant influential role in the development of post-modern art. Lapicque trained as an engineer at L’École Centrale des Arts et Manufactures and later fully dedicated himself to art in 1943. In the following years he created many vibrant panting, prints, and sculptures. His paintings use a mélange of vibrant colors and palettes as well as multiple perspectives to reflect the scenes of his travels through Europe, a prime source of influence for him.  Lapicque’s style of painting, which included portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and mythological scenes, paved the way for both pop art and narrative figuration.
