Ives Brayer (1907-1990) French Artist

Yves Brayer traveled widely to Spain, Italy, Greece, the US, Mexico, Egypt, Iran, Japan and Russia, trying to capture the light and colors of each country. He was interested in the techniques of copper plate engraving and lithography and produced illustrations for editions of such authors as Charles Baudelaire and Paul Claudel. He also created murals and wall ornamentations, tapestry cartoons, maquettes, sets, and costumes for the Théâtre Français and the operas of Paris, Amsterdam, Nice, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, and Avignon. In 1957, Yves Brayer was elected to the Académie des Beaux-Arts. He had also been president of the Salon d'Automne for five years.(wikipedia)
