H: 27 ¼" W:19 ½" See more at Career Due to thedynamism and motion inherent in his paintings, some consider Gen Paul to be thefirst action painter, a precursor to the abstract expressionists of the 1950s. GenPaul died at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris on 30 April 1975 and wasinterred in the Cimetière Saint-Vincent in Montmartre. A great many of hisworks remain in private hands but a number of his important pieces can be foundat museums in France and in other parts of Europe. In additionto painting scenes from his native Montmartre, including that of his friends,composer Darius Milhaud,writer Louis Ferdinand Celine, Gen Paul travelled tothe United States where he painted jazz and classical musicians, a subject withwhich he had much interest. Gen Paulfirst exhibited at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Indépendants in Parisin 1920. In 1928, his works were exhibited with those of Pablo Picasso andChaim Soutine. Gen Paul began the 1930s with a serious addiction to alcohol,further complicating his chronic health problems. The paintings of 1930sreflect a more somber mood with precise lines and carefully chosen colors andan emphasis of rhythm over motion. From the 1940s through his death, Gen Paulreverted to a style of action painting characterized by many of the elements ofhis work in the 1920s, but his later work never again succeeded in recapturingthe innovation, emotion and expressionism of his earlier works. In 1934, hewas recognized for his contributions to France and was awarded the Legion ofHonor. In 1937, he was contracted to paint a large fresco for the Pavilion ofWines of France at the Paris International Exposition.
