Marcel Delaris entered the National School of Fine Arts2 in Paris in 1929 (after having studied Decorative Arts in 1928). At the Beaux Arts, he joined the engraving workshop of André Devambez, which, he said, influenced his style for the rest of his life. At the National School of Fine Arts Marcel Delaris competed for the Grand Prix de Rome for three years in a row and “climbed into the box” among the top 9. On this occasion, he painted the painting “Ulysses and Calypso” a work of his youth that he probably “covered” afterwards with another painting. After the Fine Arts, received in the drawing professorship, Marcel Delaris was appointed to the lycée d'Aurillac where he would teach until the War. Marcel Delaris did his military service in Bastia, Corsica (1932-33), where he produced many gouaches and paintings. Mobilized in September 1939, Corporal Marcel Delaris was taken prisoner in May 19403 and spent nearly four years in captivity in Germany (1940-1943). He will bring back a series of works on paper, drawings and gouaches which were the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Musée d'Elne, which has several of his works. After the War, Marcel Delaris worked as a drawing teacher at the Lycée François-Arago in Perpignan. He spent his entire career there until his retirement in the early 1970s. An indefatigable artist, he continued to produce until his death in August 1995 in Perpignan. His very prolific work is deployed in a variety of styles, techniques and supports: charcoal, oil, pastel, watercolor, gouache, Indian ink, ceramics ... posters, decorations, tapestries, painted stones and woods. Excellent in the production of landscapes, Marcel Delaris was also a portrait painter in great demand throughout his career. His oil and watercolor paintings are classic, taking their inspiration from scenes of everyday life, especially from his native Roussillon, such as the net muckers in Collioure, as well as in bucolic landscapes. There was a time left from the initial academicism to move towards a more expressionist style (cf. “drawing students”, Terrus Elne Museum).
