About the artist
Painter of still lifes, portraits, nudes Jean Louis LATAPIE (1981-1972) is a painter from the New School of Paris. At the start of the 1920s he met Braque and Bissière, Bissière with whom he formed a solid friendship.
In 1922, he exhibited alongside Jacques Villon then presented, for his first personal exhibition, his cubist works at the La Licorne gallery in Paris. Accepted very early by the cubists, he will explore this movement by seeking a synthesis between the rigor of cubism and the lyricism of color. His predilection for form brings him in the 1960s to a non-figurative period.
During his career he exhibited regularly in the main Parisian salons: Salon d'Automne, Salon des Indépendants, Salon des Tuileries. He has presented numerous private and group exhibitions. He carried out many decorative works: a wall at the Pierre de Coubertin stadium, a pillar of the famous "La Coupole" brasserie in Paris, in 1949 tapestries for Aubusson, Les Gobelins, Beauvais.
Like Braque and Picasso, his work will be the subject of a major retrospective in 1971 at the Palais des papes in Avignon.
Works by Louis Latapie are included in public collections: Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris / Center Georges Pompidou, Paris / Museums of Dunkirk, Avignon, Poitiers, Geneva.
