About the artist
Jean Signovert (1919-1981) is a painter and engraver from the New School of Paris.
He collaborated with the greatest masters of the post-war period in producing their prints. In 1948, he met Georges Braque with whom he worked for 5 years. Fautrier, Poliakoff, Arp, Chastel also appealed to his talents as an engraver.
His work is not limited to engraving. Jean Signovert practiced painting and drawing equally and with jubilation. His predilection for paper works is exercised through watercolors, gouaches and drawings. Abstract compositions all in geometric rigor, rigor attenuated by a colorful fantasy and material effects, or by the subtle play of mixed techniques.
Jean Signovert has exhibited his work in numerous galleries (Maeght, Jeanne Bucher, Drouand David, La Hune in Paris ...), museums (New York, Lausanne, Budapest, Poitiers, Amboise ...) and Salons (de Mai, of New Realities).
Works by Jean Signovert have been acquired by museums: City of Paris, Pontoise, the Albert Museum of London, North Holland.
