Gabriel Couderc

Born: 1905. Died: 1994. Nationality: French.


Couderc was born in Sète in the Languedoc, France and studied at the École des Beaux Arts Decoratifs in Paris.

Mediterranean scenes featured in much of his work which in his use of colour shows the influence of the Fauves; he developed a geometric, structured style incorporating solid blocks of colour as in the print in this collection.

He was co-founder of the École de Sète and became curator of the Musée Paul Valery, also in Sète.
