Paul Sérusier


French artist; a painter and founder of the Nabis movement in Paris, 1888.

Destined by his father to become a businessman, Sérusier nevertheless entered the Académie Julian as a porter in 1888. In October of the same year he met Paul Gauguin in Pont-Aven, a meeting that would change his views on art so much so that when he returned to Paris he founded the Nabis movement. He painted stage sets for Lugné-Poe and Alfred Jarry, traveled to Italy and Germany.

Impassioned by pictorial and philosophical research, he published "ABC de la Peinture," 1921, a digest of his aesthetic theories and research on the golden section. Sérusier married in 1912.

He died in Morlaix, France on 7 October 1927.
