Charles GUERIN (1875-1939) Charles GUERIN (1875-1939) :

Charles-François-Prosper Guérin (Sens, 1875–1939) was a French post-impressionist painter. The son of the painter Jean Michel Prosper Guérin, Charles studied with Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) in the École des Beaux Arts à Paris, and had one exhibition at the Grafton Galleries.
He began exhibiting in 1897 at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, the Salon d’Automne from 1903, and the Salon des Indépendants from 1906.
Guérin exhibited primarily at the Galerie Druet in Paris. He exhibited in many European cities including Munich in 1898, 1900 and 1911, Brussels in 1908, Amsterdam in 1912, and Rome in 1913.
Guérin attained some historic notoriety for sitting on the jury of the Salon d'Automne of 1908, which rejected almost all of the paintings of Georges Braque. The other jury members were Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, and Albert Marquet, all of whom had also been students of Moreau. The jury's action caused Braque--who had been a great success the year before--to withdraw completely from the Salon. Braque subsequently entered into an exclusive contract with the dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler requiring him (and Picasso) to avoid salons, during which time Braque and Picasso developed cubism.
Guérin’s paintings fell out of fashion after World War One, however he continued working and in 1923 he was one of the founders of the Salon des Tuileries.
Guérin was an admirer of Monet and Renoir, and took the technique of the Impressionists and applied it in his own style, with unusual and original use of color. He painted portraits, but his boldness expresses itself best in his nudes and vampish women.
Guérin illustrated several books, including Daphnis et Chloé and works by Colette. He designed decorations and costumes for Monteverdi’s Couronnement de Poppée at the Théâtre des Arts Frais et Lumineux.
Guérin in represented in the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Musée Caen, and Musée Toulon.
At least ten of Guérin’s painting were acquired by the Museum of Modern Western Art in Moscow, they are now at the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg.
