Emile Sabouraud (French 1900-1996)

Student Othon Friesz at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiere (circa 1918-1920) and member of the Pré Saint-Gervais Group, he exhibited at the Salon des Independants, the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Tuileries. In Algiers, he was a resident of the Villa Abd-el-Tif in 1935 and 1936. After returning to France, he joined the Painters of poetic reality. He was a professor at the Académie Julian from 1946 and Decorative Arts in Paris (1954-1970).
