Gustave Singier

(Warneton/Belgien 1909 - 1984 Paris)

In 1919, Singier’s family moves to Paris, where he starts painting in 1923. He also studies for three years at the École Boulle, a school of applied arts, and then works as a decorator and interior designer until 1936. Singier’s clearly organized pictures exemplify the decorative and lighthearted side of the “École de Paris.” After the Second World War, the artist also produces designs for church windows and tapestries.
