Henry de Waroquier is a French painter, sculptor, designer and engraver, attached to the School of Paris. In his childhood, he frequented the Durand-Ruel, Bing and Vollard galleries which are located near his family home in Paris. He took architecture lessons from Charles Genuys at the School of Decorative Arts, and benefited from lessons from the Hellenist Louis Ménard who deepened his knowledge of mythology. Henry de Waroquier begins with an imaginative pictorial work. He was then professor of decorative composition at the Ecole Estienne (Paris), and professor of painting at the studio A of the Académie Scandinave (Paris). He painted especially Brittany from 1900 to 1910, approaching the cloisonnism of the Nabis painters, then he settled in his studio in Montparnasse and frequented Modigliani and the artists of the School of Paris. The trip he made to Italy in 1912 marked the beginning of his white period, linked to his discovery of pre-Italian pre-Renaissance frescoes, against which he reacted in 1917 by painting, in very counter-tones. dark, imaginary landscapes. A second trip to Italy in 1920, Corsica, Chamonix and Saint-Tropez between 1914 and 1921, Spain in 1921, northern France and Belgium around 1933 followed, which led him to paint the landscape on nature and the human figure. In 1926 the Belfort Society of Fine Arts was created, which every year until the Second World War organized major exhibitions in the museums of Belfort in which Henry de Waroquier took part. He participated in the 1938 Tuileries Salon on the theme of Spain. He was initially influenced by cubism, then dramatic lighting and the depiction of pathetic faces gave his work a tragic accent. Also a sculptor from 1930, an engraver from 1936 and fresco artist, in 1937 he produced a wall composition for the Palais de Chaillot (Paris). Henry de Waroquier is also a photographer and poet: he writes The Last Judgment "a monumental work in ten volumes that he had started in 1908, which will be completed only in 1967, and still unpublished". He was a friend of Paul Claudel who devotes a critical text to him. Died on December 31, 1970 and resting in Paris at the Père-Lachaise cemetery, his features remain fixed to us by a print by Henri Vergé-Sarrat, Henry de Waroquier in his studio.
