Paul Ranson


French painter. He studied at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs there before marrying his cousin France Rousseau in 1884 and moving to Paris and transferring to the Académie Julian in 1886. There he met Paul Sérusier in 1888 and became a founding member and a creative leader of the Nabis group. They gathered at his studio in the Boulevarde du Montparnasse each Saturday. He was the one who introduced the Nabi language within the group. In 1908, he created the Académie Ranson with his wife Marie-France, to teach the Nabi ideas and techniques. After his death in Paris on 20 February 1909, his wife continued to run the academy.
