Valmier,are available as a group or individually. Born and educated in France, Georges Valmier was a pioneer of the Cubist Movement. He studied with Luc-Olivier Merson at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts from 1905 to 1909. As early as 1911, he adapted the Cubist designs for practical application such as futuristic decorations for Marinetti’s theater. He exhibited his works in Paris at the Salon des Indépendants. In 1932 Valmier joined the Abstraction-Creation group, and in this later period of his career created three large panels for the French railway SNCF company’s pavilion at the International Exhibition of 1937 in Paris. Valmier was also an accomplished musician, and this love comes forth clearly in works throughout his career. In fact, beginning in 1919, he began giving his paintings musical titles such as Improvisation and Scherzo. Collections: Solomon R.
